Questions on Data Security/Cybersecurity

Updated August 6th, 2021

What are Dahua’s standards for cybersecurity?

Dahua maintains extremely high standards to protect the security and privacy protections of its customers’ data. Dahua has an internal, cross-functional team (the Dahua Cybersecurity Committee or DHCC) that has responsibility for reporting security vulnerabilities, providing timely notice of vulnerabilities to customers, and sharing cybersecurity knowledge and best practices with customers. It also maintains a Cybersecurity Lab that has developed a robust 7-module baseline standard of security to provide protection during device operation and remote access.  The Cybersecurity Lab also has developed a standard process to design and validate the cybersecurity features of new products with the expert assistance of the highly regarded Synopsys Technology.

As with all technology products, vulnerabilities are sometimes discovered in the products manufactured by Dahua and a limited number of vulnerabilities have been identified in certain Dahua products in the past. These vulnerabilities were of course not intentional, and we have followed best practices in the industry for responding to them. Dahua was quick to publicize the vulnerabilities once they were discovered and has worked cooperatively with the United States Department of Homeland Security to assess the vulnerabilities and provide guidance to the marketplace, and promptly developed and issued patches. Dahua is not aware of any American customer who experienced a data breach in connection with any vulnerability in our products.
