Webinar Topic: Protecting Buildings from Cyber Attacks – Six Important Steps to Take Today
Presented by: The Intelligent Buildings Council (IBC) of Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) and Veridify Security
The systems and technology that operate Smart Buildings are increasingly subject to cyber attacks. Solutions for Smart Building cyber defense have focused on monitoring, visibility, and containment during or after an attack, but not real-time protection to prevent an attack. Therefore, cyber attack risk exposure remains for operational disruption and financial liability, while threatening the safety of occupants and a building’s reputation. New low-cost, real-time security solutions are emerging for building automation and Operational Technology (OT) systems, including methods for addressing existing installations. This presentation will highlight how real-time cybersecurity is different from monitoring, key aspects of creating and implementing a secure environment, and how real-time security can be added to existing systems.
