www. • Februar y/March 2018 • SECURIT Y TECHNOLOGY E XECUTIVE 9 Given the nature of today 's technologies and the threats against them, security is now an important part of the design of any networked product. Thus, cybersecurity engineering is a rapidly growing field (see /cybersecurity-engineer- ing /) and has become a critical aspect of the design and manufacture of any electronic security system application or device. The " Building In Security Maturity Model" (, origi- nally developed in 2009, is now in its eighth iteration. Vendor Responsibility Securely deploying an electronic security system is the responsibility of the installing integrator. How- ever, it is the responsibility of the vendor to manufac- ture securable products, to provide guidance on how to perform secure deployment, and most importantly – to make products manageable at the scale to which they are being deployed. To date, the lack of large camera system manageability has been the primary shortcoming of security video cameras. Hopefully, other manufacturers will follow the example of AXIS , and the Security Industry Association will develop standards so that custom- ers with multiple brands of cameras (or any type of networked security system device) can use a single application to manage them all, with vendors con - tributing the data or software module components required for third-party application support. End-user customers need to be able to use auto- mated tools to monitor and manage their systems, something that IT has been doing for decades. Hats off to ASIX Communications for breaking ground in this important area of electronic secu- rity system deployment. Request information: ow safe is your School?
