An Indispensable Tool
As part of the 5th VBG Forum Security Services, Marcus Schermann (Head of Mobile Technology and CTO Security at DB Sicherheit GmbH) gave a presentation on the use of body cams at DB Sicherheit — from testing to regular operation. It was an exciting presentation around the challenges in data protection that the use of body cams in a large company brings with it. Marcus Schermann was also able to report in detail on the preventive effect of body cameras. The facts prove that DB Sicherheit employees equipped with our NetCo Body Cam are less likely to become victims of physical attacks, if at all. The deterrent and de-escalating character of the body cams is the focus of DB Sicherheit, but also the possibility of tracking criminal acts. Evidence can be transmitted directly to the federal police in encrypted form. Schermann emphasizes that the body cam has now become an indispensable tool for protecting employees and rail customers.
DB Security Is A Customer Since 2017
Deutsche Bahn has been a NetCo customer since 2017 and has been using our body cams on platforms and with DB Security service staff throughout Germany since 2019. DB Regio uses the body cameras primarily for ticket checks and for service staff. The use of the body cams serves to prevent incidents.
