Foreign video surveillance bans

Your business's security and reputation are paramount. You don’t want your security efforts to fall into the wrong hands, which is why it’s so important to choose reputable vendors for your video surveillance. A trend worth emphasizing this year is that a number of Chinese and Russian companies were recently named in bans by Maryland and The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) because the named entities present an unacceptable level of cybersecurity risk. These companies may be involved in activities such as cyber-espionage, surveillance of government entities, and inappropriate collection of sensitive personal information.
