Cyber security Challenges of Smart Buildings

As a link between physical and digital worlds, smart building technologies use key features of connectivity, automation, open architecture, and interoperability to share data that helps optimise total performance of buildings, businesses, and occupants.

Bringing together historically-isolated systems, smart buildings have unparalleled power to drive effectiveness and efficiency. This continued digital evolution, however, also presents a range of cybersecurity concerns that smart building owners, operators and managers need to seriously consider. This presentation will lead you through the top ten cyber threats, referencing real life attacks on technical as well as psychological level. Further it will give you recommendations to analyse the cyber security safety levels of your smart building using the international guide line of IEC62443.

To round off, the presentation introduces you to the newest technical cyber security measures on building automation level, using network separation, control groups, process observation, BACnet Secure Connect and blockchain technology.
