Commercial Building are Increasingly Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks. How Can Buildings be Made Cyber Safe?
Increasing network connectivity for building devices is escalating the risk of cyber attacks. A recent Cybersecurity report* indicated that 75% of organizations experienced three or more intrusions in the past year, and 61% impacted Operational Technology (OT) systems that run buildings today. The growing number of cyber attacks on buildings puts tenants and operations at risk, and these attacks are typically unreported. Protecting access with firewalls is useful but also susceptible to human-caused vulnerabilities. Monitoring for threats and cyber intrusions is also helpful but only provides alerts after a breach has been detected.
Veridify provides a unique approach to security with device-level protection for new and existing building automation and OT networks. For buildings, this means protecting the building automation network so that only authorized devices can communicate with each other. This month’s update has numerous resources to further explain the cyber threats for buildings and how Veridify’s solution, DOME, can provide cyber protection and stop cyber attacks before they happen.
