Compliance and CCTV Cameras

Video surveillance is a crucial asset in intelligence collection, crime prevention, crisis management, forensic applications, etc. The minimum requirement in societal security is for the authorities to be able to rapidly use the data collected by different CCTV systems from
given locations.

With recently reported Hacks such as the VERAKADA hack reported in March 2021, and many other hacks, including the Mirai botnet attack which used more than 100,000 cameras, it is important that CCTV cameras follow globally defined compliance and standards such as ISO 27001, etc.

ISO has come up with ISO22311 standards that are focused on CCTV and video surveillance setups.

It is crucial for societal security that present and future video surveillance systems
implement this interface to allow efficient forensic processing of the material produced,
often in massive quantities and also contains provisions to ensure that privacy measures can be implemented to
protect the rights of the individuals.

Since video surveillance recording often includes taking records of citizens, requirements relating to privacy, use of the records, and their disposal are also considered.

ISO 22311 Compliance for CCTV Network and IP Cameras.
Based on the above-mentioned technical standards, the following format components are covered:

  1. Video
  2. Audio
  3. Metadata
    • Descriptive (location, camera identifier, etc.)
    • Dynamic (date, time, pan, tilt, zoom, identification results, etc.
    • Encapsulation/packaging for the output file.
  4. Data/access security and integrity.
  5. Provisions for privacy.
  6. Informative data regarding the presentation to users

CCTV cameras and CCTV networks form the Digital Nervous System of Homeland Security and Law enforcement all over the world. CCTV cameras are essential for governance and are used for monitoring, situational awareness, planning and it is important that this network is all time up and running. However, like any other digital network system, a CCTV network also needs to be protected against cyber-attacks, hacking, snooping, etc.
