Come and join us on the tossing of prosperity salad (Lo-Hei Yu Sheng 捞起魚生), for our post Lunar New Year celebration.
On this night, we are also pleased to welcome the Director of Advisense Pte Ltd, Hozehfa MH Topiwala, to talk and share about physical security.
Close Circuit TVs have become ubiquitous in Singapore. From managing traffic to looking out for shoplifters, from securing the perimeter to settling insurance claims, the uses of CCTV are myriad.
Beneficial as CCTV are, they need to be used with care. To achieve optimal security, CCTVs should be combined with appropriate illumination, effective overlap of range, and must have adequate storage space for the images. Images and footages need to be handled with care and a set of policies and procedures to store, access, and delete these needs to be developed.
Careless deployment of CCTV will not only offer a false sense of security but may also expose the organisation to violation of the Personal Data Protection Act 2012. In addition, a poorly implemented or maintained CCTV system is itself vulnerable to cyber security issues and being hacked.
Hozehfa will bring us an inside view of the CCTV technology and systems, and the legal and IT security aspects of deploying a CCTV camera in home, office, and commercial establishments.
Join us on this session to learn about:
1. How best to deploy a CCTV system for home and office
2. Who will guard the guards – keeping the CCTV system safe
3. Developing policies and procedures to keep out of trouble
This session will be of interest to security professionals, business owners, IS auditors, and anyone who has been intrigued by the CCTV cameras that now dot the urban landscape.

Lately, we’ve seen news stories about cyberattacks on manufacturers of children’s electronics during which millions of parents’ and children’s personal information, including photos of children, were stolen.

But, we have to do our best to minimize the casualties and most important of all, that they do not involve children….
