6119 - Cybersmart Buildings: Securing Your Investment in Connectivity and Automation

Wednesday, September 27
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

It is no longer enough for a building to be smart – it must now be cyber smart. IT professionals have not historically been consulted in the review or procurement of control systems or operational technology (OT). Building owners, operators and managers have traditionally evaluated and purchased smart building capabilities based on business criteria such as functionality, efficiency, cost, reliability and quality. Building system investment today should include a review of cybersecurity.

As access to building data and operational systems increases, so do the challenges associated with securing the smart building environment. The same capabilities that provide beneficial new features can also introduce a material risk to occupants and bottom lines.
