ONVIF Explores Cyber Security at Intersec 2018

SAN RAMON, Calif. – January 8, 2018. ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced that it will be presenting at Intersec 2018, January 21-23, 2018, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, as part of Intersec’s AI and Information Security Conference.


Jonathan Lewit, Chair of the ONVIF Communication Committee, will present on “It takes a Village: Addressing Cyber Security Threats Through Standardization, People and Process,” a session designed to help attendees understand the interplay between the elements of standardization, people and process, and how ONVIF leverages established best practices for cyber security in its specifications. Lewit, who also serves as Director of Technology Leadership for Pelco by Schneider Electric, will address the importance of these best practices in cyber security, as the number of IOT devices is expected to surge in the next three years.

Lewit will be speaking at 12:00 on Tuesday, January 23 in the AI and Information Security Conference.


“ONVIF is designed to standardize physical security in a way that reflects industry specifications and needs,” said Per Björkdahl, Chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “Jonathan will speak to Intersec attendees about how ONVIF interoperability standards enable manufacturers, systems integrators and end users alike to take the necessary steps to improve cyber security.”
