WESTFORD, MA. April 6, 2016 – Tyco Security Products is introducing its Cyber Protection Program at the ISC West 2016 security conference, held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, April 5-8.  The multifaceted program provides a holistic approach to cybersecurity protection for physical security through each phase of the product development life cycle.

A trusted global leader, Tyco Security Products has developed its cybersecurity expertise after many years of providing critical solutions for the United States government and other large multinational customers, and holds several industry-firsts including FISMA-ready access control and video solutions.

“Our Cyber Protection Program was born from our unique and broad experience in complying with government regulatory standards and meeting the highly complex needs of multinational deployments,” said Steve Carney, Senior Director, Integration Platforms, Tyco Security Products. “Our deep understanding of these regulatory rigors helps us to better partner with our customers to more effectively mitigate risks from hackers, activists or other malicious threats when it comes to their physical security systems.”

The Cyber Protection Program is led by a trusted product development team, which ensures compliance with secure development best practices. Some of these include:

  • Developing and maintaining the company’s security standards for product development
  • Performing security evaluations and testing on devices, applications and systems
  • Providing guidance to help users configure systems to comply with standards such as FISMA and NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)
  • Performing in-house and independent third-party security testing of Tyco SP products 
  • Evaluating and developing responses to potential vulnerabilities potentially affecting our products as they are discovered

The program has already been implemented across several product lines, including Software House, American Dynamics and Illustra, and the Cyber Protection team is managing the longer term strategy for embedding the same cyber safety mindset across other product lines within the Tyco Security Products portfolio.

In addition to the extensive internal controls it has developed, Tyco Security Products also recognizes the importance of education and advocacy, and has been invited to speak about “The Convergence of Physical and Cyber Security: Recognizing the Readiness of IP-based System”  at the ISCW Conference on Wednesday, April 06, 2016: 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM.
