SILVER SPRING, Md. — The Security Industry Association (SIA) Standards Committee has released a whitepaper that explores the impact of the cloud on physical security.
The whitepaper is the product of SIA’s recently formed Cloud and Mobility Working Group. In addition to defining the group’s vision of cloud and mobility solutions as a technology and business driver for the industry, the document provides clear definitions and a model reference architecture for cloud-based security applications. Several cloud and mobility candidates for standardization are also outlined in the whitepaper.
Standardization candidates include a cloud security reference model, mapping of components to this model, and a common cloud session establishment framework for physical security products. The paper also includes best practices from the information technology world that can be applied to physical security, according to SIA.
Cloud and Mobility Working Group Chair Steve Van Till, president and CEO of Brivo Systems, will take the lead on many of these proposed standardization candidates. He plans to form task forces to address these issues.
