Hikvision embarks on European cyber security roadshow

Hoofddorp, The Netherlands

Chuck Davis is an adjunct professor of Computer Science at the University of Denver, teaching master’s degree courses in Ethical Hacking and Computer Forensics.

Hikvision setting out on a European roadshow with the aim of raising awareness on key cyber security concerns and giving tips on how to combat them. The roadshow will kick off in Frankfurt, Germany on September 18th and travel to seven cities throughout September and October, including Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki, and four cities in the Netherlands.

Led by Chuck Davis, Hikvision’s Director of Cybersecurity for North America, “Cybersecurity and Video Surveillance: Presented by Hikvision" roadshows will consist of a 90-minute interactive education session about cyber security, cyber threats and vulnerabilities, myths about the video surveillance industry, and best practices to mitigate those threats and vulnerabilities.

"All Internet-connected devices have vulnerabilities. The important thing is that people are educated about cyber security best practices and that companies have a robust vulnerability management programme. To effectively combat cyber security problems, we need to work together across the security industry," Davis said. "Cyber security is not the responsibility of manufacturers or integrators or end users, it's everyone's responsibility," he added.

In the past 18 months, Davis has also conducted workshops and led seminars in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South America.

Prior to joining Hikvision, Davis worked as an Executive Security Architect for IBM, managing the global malware defense and vulnerability management programmes. Previously, he worked as the Manager of Global Cyber Defense for the Hershey Company. In addition to his work as a cyber security professional, Davis is an adjunct professor of Computer Science at the University of Denver, teaching master’s degree courses in Ethical Hacking and Computer Forensics.
