Don't let your building get hackedCyber threats against smart buildings are on the rise. 38 percent of smart buildings have been impacted by a cyberattack (source: Kaspersky report). In most of these events, hackers gained access by taking advantage of vulnerabilities in the building automation system. The adoption of smart building technology that connects building Operational Technology to IT systems and IoT devices has exponentially increased buildings’ exposure to cyber criminals. It's time to get more security conscious. Building designers, owners, and operators need to develop strategies that strengthen building automation system security to avoid getting hacked. Siemens offers holistic solutions with a key focus on closing gaps in building automation network protocols to strengthen building cybersecurity.
Bridging the cybersecurity gap in buildings
This e-book provides an overview of the key steps building stakeholders can leverage to build a cybersecurity strategy. Each chapter includes important considerations at various stages of implementation. Learn how you can improve your smart building cybersecurity today.
Converging IT and OT for smarter buildings
The convergence of technologies is not a new concept, but it is evolving and making its way through the technology stack. Advances in technology enable the digital information environment to monitor, analyze, and influence the physical operational environment. Historically, IT and OT have occupied entirely separate domains and shared little or no meaningful data or control. Even though they both use IP connected equipment, IT and OT devices do not behave exactly the same on the network. More than ever before, successful business outcomes and environmental objectives depend on the convergence of IT and OT, and the demand for “smarter buildings” is bringing the two domains together
The new standard in cybersecurity – BACnet Secure ConnectBACnet, the leading building automation protocol, has released a new data link, BACnet/SC, as part of the standard. BACnet/SC brings cybersecurity and IT acceptance to Operational Technology (OT) networks. It adds an encryption layer to communication and requires device authentication using certificates, which makes OT networks less vulnerable to cyberattacks.
