CCTV systems: proportionality and compliance is key

The use of CCTV is controversial and organisations are being encouraged to use it transparently, effectively and proportionately. Tony Porter, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner (SCC) said recently: “I’m determined to raise standards across the industry”.

FOUR Security are increasingly being asked to undertake reviews of CCTV systems and processes. We have full ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation and are BSIA members.

We are experienced in providing end-to-end CCTV solutions that are aligned to the data handling considerations of the SCC’s Code of Practice and its twelve guiding principles.

Typically we undertake a review to establish the Risk & Operational Requirements of our client’s CCTV needs. This includes reviewing local demographics and crime mapping, and undertaking Privacy Impact Assessments to support public confidence in our solutions.

Based on government and best practice guidelines, our written report takes an evidence-based approach, thus ensuring the system design meets the client’s existing needs, with the capability of meeting future emerging threats.

We can assist in tendering, producing a Specification of Requirements, including data storage facilities and equipment required, and in the evaluation of bids received.

We also handle the installation and maintenance of systems. Our designs incorporate leading technology solutions and our experienced Project Management team has successfully delivered to local authority and FTSE 100 clients.
