Security cameras are now part of IoT meaning that they can be operated by connecting them directly to the internet. This has the following pro aspects: the costs are lower for their use meaning that many end users can bring them without going through costly surveillance companies. But it also has con aspects that we will explain now.
The appearance of webcams is substantially better than other types of cameras thanks to the IP connectivity that makes them cheaper to produce and implement because they do not require a computer to send the images to end user that can use any device from PC to smartphone to control them.
Many companies and end users have chosen to use their camera system at the expense of traditional CCTV systems but as we said before they also are affected by safety hazards.
IP cameras are IoT devices in the end, and because of this, they are likely to be hacked. In this case a hack creates three main problems: it grants hacker access to the content that a camera records, it also grants hacker the possibility to display fake content, and last but not least they are as vulnerable as any other IoT devices to specialized malware meaning they can be used to access the network of an entire company.
There is much-specialized malware like Reaper, IoTrooper, Persirai which are infecting a more significant number of devices day by day. Reaper, for example, is guaranteeing access to the networks to which it is connected, or it can be participating in DDoS attacks. One famous case was the offensive against Dyn in October 2016.
The DDoS attack on Dyn paralyzed much of the Internet for hours, and the attack had the particularity that was not composed of good old PCs; instead, it was made possible by the infected IoT devices, including IP cameras.
These IP cameras are most of the time not adequately secured because in many cases they fail to encrypt wireless communication efficiently.
For those who opt for a security system based on IP cameras we have some advice:
– first – always to use cameras connected by cable this method diminishes the chances of a breach
– second – build your server that manages data coming from the surveillance system
– third – always control the network entirely, and the data inside of it making sure that it does not leave the company
– fourth – protect every device that can be an entry point to the network with excellent cybersecurity solution.

Most of the companies don't care about cybersecurity until they suffer a breach.
A healthy company must perform a penetration test from time to time. The penetration test must execute against all the assets of the company, including the workers who are the most vulnerable to the social engineering attacks.
A penetration test can be done either by a security specialist from inside of the company or by hiring an external cyber security company who can take care of everything.
Besides penetration test, a company must have a minimum healthy cybersecurity system installed like antivirus or firewall.
