Everyone working in a frontline role is aware of the potential risks involved in dealing with confrontations with the public, and the need for personal security.
And we all know that prevention is better than cure. The rise in the use of body worn video devices demonstrates that significant gains to safety can be made just by the presence of the camera, and of course evidence is then captured if an incident does occur.
So we understand personal security, but what consideration do we give to data security?
Capturing footage on a daily basis in a variety of situations, (sometimes of a sensitive nature) can cause the data controller of an organisation a huge headache. What happens to the recordings once downloaded? Who can access or make copies of the data? What happens if a camera which contains personal information is stolen? How do you ensure unwanted data is destroyed in a timely manner? All of these questions need to be answered in order to comply with Data Protection law.
At Edesix we take data control and management very seriously. Our VideoBadge and VideoManager system not only provides the personal protection and prevention benefits that we expect from body worn video solutions, but also strict data management controls and encryption which provide the protection and prevention the organisation needs to help them comply with current legislation.
Encryption – video and audio recordings made by VideoBadge are securely encrypted so that even if the equipment is lost or stolen the data cannot be accessed.
Management – VideoManager controls user access and permission levels to determine who can view or produce evidence from recorded footage
Traceability - audit logs are recorded for every user action on the system, allowing complete traceability and transparency
Storage and Indexing - VideoBadge burns the date, time, device and frame number into every frame of footage, allowing for clear indexing
Peace of mind comes with knowing that staff are safer when out on the frontline and the data they capture is protected from potentially embarrassing and costly security breaches.
