ISBU Newsletter June 2023



A word from the editor


Hi everyone!


In this month's issue we discuss how the i-PRO has introduced the AI Smart Box, a compact device that converts non-AI network cameras into smart devices by using deep-learning analytics to extract object metadata. This enables integration with i-PRO Active Guard, providing valuable forensic search and real-time notifications without additional fees or delays. In the realm of data protection, best practices include prioritizing data protection and privacy, implementing employee education, end-to-end encryption, and adhering to data privacy regulations.


The Cyber & Tech News section of the newsletter covers how the recent cyberattacks have highlighted the advanced tactics of China-based hackers who exploited a Microsoft Outlook flaw and forged authentication tokens to access email accounts of US and Western European governments. Implementing AI in businesses brings both security risks and legal concerns, such as AI-powered phishing attacks and the need for robust security measures. Meanwhile, the US Space Force utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance space domain awareness, manage space-based platforms, and address threats by processing large volumes of data from satellites and commercial space initiatives.
