The Roadshow Summary:
Now in its 4th year, the annual Bolton Roadshow brings together Norbain’s key suppliers and customers for a day of networking, discussions, education and demonstrations.
Our suppliers will be promoting their products and showcasing their latest developments from our CCTV, Access Control and Intruder Portfolio. With a wide range of suppliers on hand, Norbain offer you the opportunity to experience demonstrations and discuss future projects.
The open exhibition will be complemented by a series of seminars from industry experts on a range of topics such as the new ‘Secure by Default’ initiative and identifying business opportunities via connected solutions. Norbain’s Field and internal Sales teams will be ready to guide you around the event.
According to last year’s visitors, the show “[was] definitely one of the best,” so why not come along on the 16th May to see what it’s all about? Don’t just take our word for it, watch our 2018 highlights video to find out more!

From analogue to complete IP – an end user’s journey
Axis will take us through the journey they undertook with a major end user that started over 6 years ago. The end user had an analogue system that was coming to the end of its life and needed a solution that was both future-proof and scalable. The journey started with the VMS platform and cameras, it has since grown to include Thermal, Perimeter Protection Analytics, Audio and Access control. This continues to grow, providing a true connected solution for the user. Many stakeholders were involved in the process and Axis will share the lessons learned and the importance of building a solid foundation for future growth.

The business case for integrated security system versus individual products
People often use the words integration and interoperability without fully understanding the meanings. Integration refers to connecting applications so that data from one system can be accessed by the other one (often using software); it is not a direct path from point A to point B. Interoperability is a data exchange between systems without software.
This presentation provides an understanding of the benefits of an integrated security system versus individual products from different manufacturers. It gives real examples and outlines the problems installers and end users can experience when choosing a complete security system.

Secure by Default – protecting yourselves and your customers against cyber attacks
Buzz will be talking about Norbain’s work with a range of manufacturers and governing bodies to develop essential guidelines to ensure that security systems are built to be fully secure. There has been a huge amount of press over the last couple of years about unprotected, or poorly protected, systems and the resulting, often highly damaging, consequences to all involved. The Secure by Default initiative ensures that any solutions designed by participating manufacturers start with the necessary, robust security requirements, rather than them being an afterthought.
Why is the initiative necessary?
In the move from analogue to IP CCTV systems, the industry needed the products to be easy to find and install due to the general lack of skill set in networks in the industry. Sadly, by making the technology easy to install, it has resulted in hackers and hacktivists being able to utilise video streams from NVRs and cameras for the wrong reasons.
Why is Secure by Default important for Installers?
Secure by Default basically removes the burden of knowledge away from the installer or system integrator on how to lock a system down by providing them with an already secure product. Through life, Secure by Design also requires an ongoing vulnerability management programme that ensures vulnerabilities identified are dealt with in a timely manner. This often includes a vulnerability disclosure process and the development and distribution of software patches to correct the vulnerability.
