Technologies such as occupancy management, automated visitor management and touchless access control applications are increasing in demand – turning up the dial on interoperability as organizations seek to deploy best of breed solutions. To power these technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud storage and the Internet of Things (IoT) are driving new functionalities and new uses from existing technologies to deliver customized applications for pandemic related health, safety and security issues. While this year might bring a number of uncertainties, we remain confident that the industry will continue to see growth and demand for these trends.
While Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already been introduced into medical facilities – revolutionizing the research and development methods of critical disease treatments, it’s also bringing about a transformation in healthcare security operations. With technologies such as smart cameras and IoT platforms to better manage field level operations, healthcare organizations are seeing the possibility of a more streamlined, efficient and cost-effective way to manage their facilities.
Biometric security solutions and AI-powered fraud prevention technologies have, for several years now, been transforming the ways in which organizations protect their business, their customers, and their employees. In fact, some industry estimates reveal that AI and biometrics have combined to prevent billions of dollars in losses from fraud—already.
Technology company Clearview AI’s scraping of billions of images of people from across the Internet represented mass surveillance and was a clear violation of the privacy rights of Canadians, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has found after conducting an investigation into the matter.
Small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have a number of unique considerations when it comes to video surveillance. For starters, with SMBs, managing security and risk often falls to a manager, store owner, or hourly security professional. Therefore, the convenience of being able to view multiple sites at once whether remotely or onsite is paramount.
NOAA’s Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS) has signed an agreement with Google to explore the benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for enhancing NOAA’s use of satellite and environmental data.
Security operations centers (SOCs) across the globe are most concerned with advanced threat detection and are increasingly looking to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to proactively safeguard the enterprise, according to a new study by Micro Focus, in partnership with CyberEdge Group.
The Security Industry Associated has identified its Top 10 Security Megatrends from focus groups within the industry. The trends will be an underlying theme at the Securing New Ground conference (Oct. 21-22, virtual).
Banks, like other businesses, are taking precautions to make customers feel safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Placing physical distancing markers on the floor, sanitizing ATMs, installing plexiglass partitions at teller booths and requiring scheduled appointments are just some of the ways financial institutions are mitigating risks for customers. Video surveillance can play a vitally important role right now, as banks look to ensure compliance with these new COVID-related safety measures. IP cameras with intelligent security analytics can help rapidly and accurately detect compliance issues, as well as other suspicious or atypical behavior. After all, banks must continue to monitor physical security even throughout the pandemic and today’s IP cameras with intelligent system-on-chip (SoC) technology can help lessen this burden with highly accurate notifications.
