    Hikvision Continuously Supports Cyber Hygiene


    On January 30, 2018, U.S. House of Representatives Small Business Committee held a hearing, where Chairman Steve Chabot and representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Federa lBureau of Investigation highlighted the need for increased cyber security support for small businesses. Hikvision appreciates Chairman Chabot’s focus on this issue and share his commitment to protecting small businesses from the risks of cyber-attacks.
    As a part of our continued commitment to the safety and security of our customers and partners, Hikvision supports and adheres to internationally recognized cybersecurity standards and best practices, integrating cybersecurity systems into the complete life cycle of our products. We readily coordinate and partner with government and law enforcement agencies, as well as industry peers, to prevent cyber threats and quickly combat them whenever and wherever they arise.
    As noted in the hearing in the United States, Hikvision has taken a proactive stance to addressing cybersecurity issues in the past. We will continue to work with DHS and other security institutions around the world to ensure such issues and concerns are fully addressed.
    In the spirit of the hearing, raising public awareness of this issue, we urge our customers and partners in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, to practice good cyber hygiene, including changing their default passwords and staying current on all necessary firmware and software updates. All of our firmware and software updates are located in the Downloads section of our website’s Support page. If you have any questions, please consult with your Hikvision representative. Thank you for your attention to this important topic and your continued support of Hikvision.
