It is now clear that, with massive data leaks often reaching mainstream news, public concern is rising over the security of wearable camera recordings, including who has access to such footage and for how long.
ABI Research finds that it is important that strong security protocols be put in place by enterprise wearable camera vendors and adhered to by device users to ensure that all data is kept secure and risk of loss is minimized.
Enterprise wearable camera vendors, such as Axon, Reveal, and Zepcam offer supporting platforms that will aid enterprises in securing the data that is collected from wearable cameras. These platforms feature strong authentication, password, and data encryption mechanisms, which ensure that only authorized personnel have access to the data. The platforms also log who accesses the data and when.
The firm also revealed that, some platforms, like those by Edesix and VIEVU, can also help to redact certain details, such as automatically blurring out the faces and possessions of innocent bystanders. Often the devices feature built-in storage, rather than storing the recordings on SD cards, which ensure that the data cannot be forcibly removed or deleted before being uploaded to the platforms.
