VISION SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES FOCUSED ON CYBERSECURITY WITH BURTON CERTIFICATION
In the evolving cyber landscape, in which cyberattacks are more prevalent and sophisticated, Vision Security Technologies understands the importance of taking necessary steps to help mitigate threats and make it more difficult for malicious actors to target physical security systems.
VST Information Systems Manager, Rick Burton, has earned the industry's only credential focused specifically on cybersecurity for physical security systems. The Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification (SICC) demonstrates a high level of competence in physical, cyber, and information security.
The SICC program is designed specifically for the security industry. It assesses and validates the core competencies individuals and companies must possess to effectively perform roles involving key facets of cybersecurity.
“Rick has been a key member of the Vision family for a long time,” commented Senior VP Del Deason. “This latest achievement is another example of his drive to stay up to date in an ever-changing industry. Cybersecurity is one of many topics where Rick and our engineering team provide subject matter expertise to our partners.”
With a credentialed SICC holder in Burton, VST illustrates their dedication to carrying out technical security installations according to industry best practices for electronic security and cybersecurity and aligning with partners’ organizational priorities and business objectives.
“We are extremely proud of Rick and his achievement,” noted CEO Barry Komisar. “Vision is committed to battling the evolving cybersecurity threats that we face. This certification further exemplifies that commitment.”
The SICC was developed for integrators, manufacturers, consultants, and other related industry professionals who are responsible for technically supporting the installation, networking, configuration and/or specification of electronic security/low-voltage technology devices. It is designed to ensure these professionals have hands-on experience working with industrial controls, safeguarding assets and processes and possess a deep understanding of physical security and cybersecurity convergence.
H3/H4/H5 CAMERA BUFFER OVERFLOW VULNERABILITY & FIRMWARE UPGRADE
Important updates have been made to Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software and the Avigilon H3, H4 and H5 platform camera firmware to mitigate a buffer overflow vulnerability.
Customers are advised to upgrade ACC™ software and camera firmware to take advantage of the updates. For the H5SL camera line, this requires a two-stage firmware upgrade. Please see the table below for the full list of cameras and associated firmware versions.
Customers can take any of the following steps to upgrade their camera firmware:
- Customers using ACC 7.14.0 or later may download individual camera firmware FP files or download the Complete Avigilon Device Firmware FP file by searching “complete” in the search bar and use ACC Remote Site Upgrade to apply the update.
- Customers may also download individual camera firmware FP files and apply them to multiple cameras simultaneously using the Motorola Solutions Camera Configuration Tool (CCT).
- Customers can also apply the individual camera firmware BIN files to each camera using its WebUI directly.
H5SL customers who choose to apply upgrades using the WebUI may require a two-stage process to upgrade, depending on their current camera firmware:
- 188.8.131.52 or lower: Customers should upgrade to 184.108.40.206, and then upgrade to 220.127.116.11. If the cameras are reverted by the physical revert button, customers will need to repeat the two-stage upgrade.
Note: Firmware packages applied through ACC or Avigilon Cloud Services updates or applied with CCT 18.104.22.168 or later will contain both of these firmware versions and these H5SL cameras will be automatically upgraded in the proper sequence.
22.214.171.124 or later: Customers should upgrade directly to 126.96.36.199.
