How to Make Your Central Station More Cyber Secure


Duration:60 minutes


Strong cyber security is needed at all levels of a security company’s operations, but none more so than in the central station. Whether offering alarm signaling, remote managed services, live video monitoring — or all three, plus more services — it is critical that your infrastructure, procedures and employees are impervious to a breach. Whether you operate your own central station, or use the services of third-party monitoring station, learn what should be happening at your central station so that you don’t become the next cyber-statistic.

Learning Objectives:

  • From alarms, to video, to managed access control — learn why central station data is a target
  • Chief areas of vulnerability in a central station and what their weaknesses are
  • How to harden the people, the processes and the central station technology
  • Learn why data security is the focus of increasing scrutiny
