A new law under evaluation. The Italian government is considering tightening regulations on surveillance cameras in buildings and sites deemed critical, such as institutional headquarters, law enforcement facilities, courts, and airports. This was revealed by the newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore.
- The purpose is to increase security requirements concerning non-European products, particularly Chinese ones, due to concerns that these cameras may communicate with external servers in their home country.
- The United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom have already enacted highly restrictive regulations, which have had repercussions on the supplies of major Chinese providers in the industry, such as Hikvision and Dahua. Both of these companies have a significant presence in Italy, including in the facilities of public and government institutions.
