Data breaches and other types of modern, large-scale cyberattacks have been making headlines for more than a decade, but recently, it seems like organizations in the life sciences and healthcare industry have been taking on more than their fair share. As it turns out, it doesn’t just seem that way – it’s actually happening according to Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, which states that 15% of these attacks hit healthcare organizations.

With the increased popularity of remote access to network video surveillance systems, many more CCTV products are being connected to the internet. Unfortunately, at the same time, any device connected to the internet is becoming more and more vulnerable to a cyber-attack.

Please rest assured that Munro Commubications in conjunction with our suppliers are doing our upmost to ensure that the products we supply are as secure as current technology allows. In addition, we are providing as much information as possible to help combat the threat of cyber-attacks. This includes real time security notices, “best practice” advice and download access to the latest firmware, which can be found within our downlaod section on this website.

It should be noted however that despite our best efforts, no method of transmission over the Internet can be deemed as perfectly secure. No one can guarantee absolute security due to the nature of the technology and the potential problems this can create.

However, if Munro Communications learns of any actual or potential security breach, we will try our best to notify our customers as quickly as possible, so that appropriate protective action can be taken.

Munro Communications will also ensure that any product sold will be fitted with the very latest firmware to ensure that everything possible is done to make systems as secure as they can be, but it is important that any equipment installed and connected to the internet is regularly updated to the latest firmware.
