Getting Started in Smart Building Cyber-security

This session will explore what a Smart Building is, what makes it smart. Then it will explore some of the buzzwords used by vendors to sell you their solution for smart buildings before going into what vendors are consistently getting wrong when it comes to the security of their solutions for smart buildings.
The stakeholders that can be involved in a Smart Building can be many and varied but very few (if any) have and understanding of the cyber security implications of a Smart Building.
Finally, the session will end with what different stakeholders can do to get started on making their Smart Building secure and not just smart.
