Hikvision’s VP of sales Chris Zenaty spoke about cybersecurity, vulnerabilities and smart analytics during an educational session with other security industry experts at Securing New Ground (SNG) last week in New York City.
Zenaty highlighted Hikvision’s commitment to cybersecurity, noting that Hikvision launched a new cybersecurity hotline and also recently appointed Chuck Davis, a former IBM executive security architect, to the newly created position of Hikvision director of cybersecurity for North America. Basic best practices are often the most important, Zenaty said. Hikvision reminds its customers to update to the latest available firmware and to change passwords regularly, Zenaty added.
Zenaty participated in “The Disruptors and the Innovators” panel discussion on Friday, Oct. 27 at the SIA-sponsored conference. Also participating in the panel were Jay Darfler, SVP of emerging markets and innovation for ADT Security Services, Laurie Aaron, VP of sales and business development at WaveLynx Technologies, and moderator John Petruzzi, VP of integrated security solutions at G4S.
Hikvision was an SNG event sponsor.
