Use of video surveillance

How do I install the video surveillance?


A public organization decides to install a video surveillance system (VS) to protect its buildings.


The security manager of the building draws up the project specifications for the company that is going to install the VS.


The head of the data protection refuses to approve the project because the employees will be filmed at their place of work.


The computer department management offers to blur the pictures, encrypt the transmission of data, and to secure and strictly limit access rights.


Video surveillance projects should be designed in such a way that the privacy of the employees being filmed is respected. We may monitor the services provided by the worker; on the other hand it is illegal to monitor the behaviour of the person. It is prohibited to use a video surveillance to monitor employees.
