Senstar recently announced that its Symphony video management software (VMS) provides a set of privacy-related features that support organizations with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) compliance.
GDPR recently came into effect and applies to all EU members and foreign companies that process EU resident data. Video surveillance operators are directly affected by these regulations as recorded video of identifiable people is considered personal data.
“Senstar takes data privacy very seriously,” said Senstar’s vice president of product management, Justin Schorn. “Our Symphony VMS was designed from the outset with data privacy and security in mind. Fine-tuned user permissions, along with intelligent people and vehicle masking, assists Symphony operators to meet data privacy regulations.”
Specific Symphony features that help operators meet GDPR include encrypted data transfer, static and dynamic video scrambling, two-person rule, granular user management, Microsoft Active Directory support, scheduled access control, security profiles, logging of user actions, and secure video recording and data export.
Symphony also holds certifications from DGUV UVV insurance funds and the Center for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), and is currently in the process of obtaining the data protection seal of EuroPriSe certification.
