Bank Security Manager Interview

By: Dan Gelinas, Published on May 15, 2019

Bank security contends with many significant threats - from fraudsters to robbers and more.

In this interview, IPVM spoke with bank security manager Damon Hood [link no longer available], who served in the Navy military police and in the private sector examining:

  • Who the most popular banking VMSes are
  • How they found real-world success with LPR and face finding
  • Why real-time face alerting did not work for them
  • How a military service career prepared him for private security
  • What lessons he learned scaling his SOC up from 174 square feet to 2,200
  • How IT's views on bandwidth changed
  • Why the industry needs to engage the customer
  • How they gave law enforcement what they wanted
  • Why it is important to engage the manufacturer
  • Why good WDR is so important to banks
  • What they like about their chosen brand
  • How he views security integrators as "only human"
