How secure is your video facility?  As we head into the holiday season, here are a few important remainders from our conditional access team.

Operators should implement and enforce additional physical security measures, such as:

  • Control & monitor physical access to the Video Head End office. Allowing only identified and vetted staff access to the secured area
  • Restrict any direct external connections from Head End IRD/Receiver outputs

In addition to physical security, operators’ network management should be automated and capable of logging all attempts to access, and by whom, to assist detection of any breach attempts.

The system should continually look for changes, breaches, and duplications throughout the network and address them either automatically or by notifying security personnel when necessary.
