BSIA Publishes Guidelines to Reduce Exposure to Digital Sabotage
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has published a summary of current guidelines to minimize the exposure to digital sabotage of network connected equipment, software and systems used in electronic security.
The 335 Cyber Secure It – Best Practice Guidelines for Connected Security Systems document, designed by the Cyber Security Product Assurance Group (CySPAG) and leading industry experts, is “intended to be used as a guide by any stakeholder (designers, manufacturers, installers, maintainers, service providers and users) in the supply chain regarding connected security devices/services.”
The guidelines are based on international industry best practice and refer to recognized international guidance and standards that “will assist the supply chain in their duty of care to other network users, particularly with respect to protecting the integrity of existing cybersecurity countermeasures already in place or the implementation of such countermeasures in new solutions.”
Steve Lampett, technical services manager, BSIA, said: “We think that Cyber secure it – Best Practice Guidelines for Connected Security Systems will become an invaluable guide for our industry practitioners and stakeholders alike as technology continues to evolve and the internet is used to provide a better end user experience.
“This will enable us to better serve our industry consumers by providing professional, safe and secure internet enabled security solutions.”
