Face Masking: GDPR Compliance in Video Surveillance
Everyday security cameras capture millions of hours of video footage data. With GDPR privacy rules coming into effect in the European Union, companies now have extra privacy requirements when monitoring their premises. For instance, when providing security footage for law enforcement agencies it is the responsibility of data provider to ensure that irrelevant subjects captured in video are anonymized (only the subject in question should be identifiable). Stricter regulations also apply to workplace monitoring or when security cameras capture video outside of company premises.

The solution is relevant when complying with requests of law enforcement agencies to provide data; furthermore, it anonymizes all irrelevant subjects if a client requests all data where his identity is identifiable. The solution can also mask only a particular face (applicable for workplace monitoring). If surveillance cameras capture an area outside of company premises, such area can be automatically blurred out without requiring to replace or adjust video monitoring cameras.
