All 50 states now have computer crime laws addressing unauthorized access of computers, including electronic devices and related systems. For those of you in our security alarm industry that are remotely accessing your customer computers, security alarm systems, CCTV systems, access control systems and other related systems for service, report generation, accessing or storing or retrieving data, adding and removing users, firmware updates and other related purposes, we strongly recommend you obtain a REMOTE ACCESS AGREEMENT signed by your Customer.
