Milestone Beefs Up Cybersecurity Education With Videos, Best Practices Guide
Milestone has published more than 60 free video tutorials on the company’s YouTube page that instruct on installing, configuring and operating XProtect VMS.
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Milestone Systems continues to expand the Learning & Performance Program for its channel partners and customers. The newest additions for supporting XProtect deployments include a course on “Identifying Cybersecurity Threats” and an interactive “Best Practice Deployment Checklist.”
Free online video tutorials further improve operational skills in the Milestone community, according to the company.
The “Milestone XProtect Deployment Best Practice Guide” released in February includes a 5-minute intro to show how to efficiently use the reference tool for planning, installing, servicing and upgrading XProtect VMS products.
An interactive companion “Deployment Checklist” can be clicked straight to the relevant product installation. Technicians and engineers can track their progress step-by-step through a project and add notes.
The company has also published a course called “Identifying Cybersecurity Threats.” The online class is said to cover a broad scope of cybersecurity topics that could impact XProtect VMS installations and other corporate IT systems and assets.
These topics affect both the end-user organizations as well as systems integrators who design, deploy, and support the IP video surveillance systems. People completing this course will be able to identify threats against:
- Network, server, client, and device vulnerabilities
- Physical access and tampering
- Human or behavioral vulnerabilities
In an announcement, the company states the Milestone Learning & Performance team is to empower the Milestone community to perform on the job.
“Thousands of Milestone Partners use our Learning & Performance program monthly to achieve greater expertise for successful customer installations, and we continue to develop new ways to support this,” says Greg Willmarth, director of learning & performance, Milestone Systems. “We want Milestone Partners to be well educated when working with our products, and the checklist is a great tool to show customers all that’s being accomplished.”
To date the company says it has published more than 60 free video tutorials on the company’s YouTube page that instruct on installing, configuring and operating XProtect video management software (VMS). Closed captioning is available on all videos and Google Translate to change text language.
