Cybersecurity to the Edge for Smart Building Infrastructure

This video is part of a webinar presented by KMC Controls, Veridify Security, and Arrow Intelligent Solutions regarding cybersecurity for smart buildings.

A fundamental challenge to securing smart buildings, or any building large enough to have a building automation system, is how to protect devices so that they reject cyber attacks in real-time.  Rejecting a cyber attack in real-time is different than reporting on a traffic anomaly in that it stops an attack from happening. Monitoring and alerting from anomaly is useful, but is only capable of informing about a potential false alarm or after an intrusion has occurred.  Device-level protection, using a NIST Zero Trust framework, uses mutual authentication, a secure tunnel and encrypted communications to secure the device.
