Video surveillance according to the GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new European regulatory reference for the protection of personal data
The new regulation ensures greater rights for data subjects (users), since it raises the level of data protection and the security of personal data
Organizations and companies must show transparency on how to use and safeguard personal data by demonstrating that they follow the guidelines and regulatory provisions on the subject (accountability) regarding the processing and management of personal data.
Even today, most of the legal obligations to be respected in the design of a video surveillance system refer to regulations issued by our national Supervisory Authority for the protection of personal data or by the Territorial Directorate of Labor regarding worker control.
Lan & Wan Solutions in the field of video surveillance solutions and video image acquisition software platforms, generally encourages the owners and managers of data processing, to increase their security levels by following these 4 ways:
Identity of users of the video surveillance system: blocking of unauthorized IP addresses, ad personam user profiling with strong authentication
Access Control: profiling of authorizations in live view only, separate from those for viewing the recorded images, filter activation for access blocking through protocols (TELNET, SSH, ONVIF, SNMP)
Respect for Privacy: data encryption, watermarks, and deletion of images upon exceeding the appropriate period agreed in the union agreement, in the DTL application or in the authorization received from the Supervisory Authority
Checking the status of the video surveillance system: monitoring, event logs
Lan & Wan Solutions offers video capture devices and solutions that provide for the management of the four focal points to be “GDPR and Italian Privacy Regulation compliant”
