Hikvision, an IoT solution provider with video as its core competency, has developed an online training platform to help raise awareness, knowledge and expertise in numerous topics affecting the security industry. It launches with a new Cybersecurity course to increase awareness in the industry, making it more cybersecure for the future.
he Hikvision Academy is designed with learning in mind, using easy-to-understand, practical and example-led modules to empower users with understanding and skills to meet their needs. Learning is optimized in three ways – Online Courses, for in-depth knowledge of a certain topic; Webinars, to give users an engaging way to catch up with the latest technologies; and Certification, to give users a way to use their learning. The platform works alongside classroom learning sessions, where appropriate and possible, to help users get the best of both worlds.
A hot topic in the security industry is Cybersecurity, and Hikvision’s Cybersecurity Course has just been added to the Academy portfolio. This course gives a broad and detailed over view of the challenges to the industry by the risks that go hand in hand with advances in technology. The course is made up of six lectures:
- The Basics of Cybersecurity
- Product cybersecurity
- Vulnerabilities and vulnerability management within the security industry
- How an IP camera can be hacked and what to do to prevent this
- The privacy perspective within the security industry
- How to implement cybersecurity in practice.
Among the other Online Course topics already available, or coming soon, are: NVRs, IP Camera and HikCentral. Hikvision also hosts live webinars on a number of topics ranging from Smart Buildings to All-in-one Smart PTZ, and these are also available to view through the Academy website afterwards. Finally, the comprehensive Certification program gives users the ability to prove their knowledge in various stages as they progress in their learning.
“It’s important to us at Hikvision to give back to the industries we work within. Launching the Hikvision Europe Academy will help us deliver on that commitment by sharing knowledge and providing a way to help customers and partners strengthen their knowledge and skills”, says Derek Yang, General Manager at Hikvision Europe.
