What AI Means For Your Business
If you’ve been following our blog, you know that video analytics isn’t just the wave of the future, it’s something that you can have as part of your surveillance system right now.
You can use it to chart the behavior of subjects captured on video to help make determinations about what they might do next.
For instance, if someone is hovering around your front gate, analytics might help you understand the likelihood that they’ll try to enter.
And in 2018, analytics are taking center stage. Predictive analytics can help secure your business better than ever. More than that, they can help many other aspects of your business function.
Not only can they help you see the paths of potential threats, but they can help you with queue control, choosing products that sell, and more.
Predictive analytics technology goes beyond simply reviewing the footage. It recognizes what is happening and helps you take the right action.
Let’s face it, there’s no getting around using the internet.
Whether you run an online store or you simply save information in the cloud, it’s an essential part of your workday.
But our reliance on the internet means increased chance of encountering cyber-threats.
That means enhancing cybersecurity. Below, we’ve listed a few of the smart ways you can enhance your system moving into 2018:
- Passwords: With increases in malware attacks, your passwords have become more important than ever. Changing your password regularly can help minimize the threat of breach.
- Firewalls: A firewall acts like a digital moat around your valuable information. Installing one will help prevent attacks and notify you of any potential threats lurking.
- Anti-virus software: Viruses work by self-replication. Once they’re in your system, they continue to replicate until they completely take over. Anti-virus software helps isolate and quugharantine any kind of malicious programs it finds, so viruses can’t continue to grow.
