What happened:
The massive hack into Verkada’s video surveillance cameras has exposed security vulnerabilities.  Hackers easily gained access to over 150,000 of Verkada’s surveillance cameras, streaming live video feeds from Tesla, Cloudflare, Equinox gyms, hospitals, jails, schools, and police stations and granting hackers access to internal networks.  The headlines will pass, but the damage will not.

Deeper look:
Where Verkada cameras have some great functionality, the cybersecurity protection solution was not robust enough to ward off hackers.  ‘Security by design’ and agentless device security may sound good, but in reality, these solutions do not provide the level of cyber protection required to protect devices, users or data against cyber attacks.
The extent of the breach is potentially far worse than published. Verkada only learned of the breach when the live video streams hit the media, although hackers had penetrated the devices and neighboring networks two days earlier.
