Retailers today face a number of security challenges, including shoplifting, shrink and theft at the point of sale, protecting the premises after hours, slip and fall lawsuits and much more. Adding complexity to the security challenge is that retailers face these threats in a variety of locations within stores, each of which comes with its own unique requirements. Today’s flexible, intelligent surveillance cameras offer a variety of form factors and capabilities that allow them to address the range of security and operational challenges.
For most organizations, putting great cybersecurity in place requires a massive uphill trek. Many forms of change are required – technology, process, talent, and more. Here, cyber leaders focus inward, working to get capabilities in place and reduce identified risks. But fundamentally, you need externally-driven change too, where other enterprise leaders (and key partners outside of your business) believe in the cyber mission so deeply that they can’t live without it.
The Town of Addison, Texas, is also seeing a return on its surveillance investment through easier-to-manage VMS. After a routine camera filter-and-replace, the Town’s IT department replaced cameras at three locations throughout the community: a 150,000 square-foot Athletic Club , a 44,000 square-foot Conference and Theatre Centre , and the 20-acre Addison Circle Park.
