Ensure the cyber- physical integrity of building management systems
When it comes to improving operational efficiencies, reducing energy consumption, and extending the life of critical, costly equipment, building management systems (BMSs) are indispensable. But attacks on unprotected critical systems can also pose risks to everything from peoples’ safety and comfort to production runs.
Most BMSs lack built-in security controls and can’t host security agents
Software patches are often difficult or impossible
New smart devices create new attack vectors
Ransomware targeting physical infrastructure is on the rise, given all the security blind spots attackers can exploit in a BMS
