Cyber Security for Smart Buildings in the Cloud Age

The only certainty in Cyber Security is that high profile compromises, such as the City of Baltimore ransomware attack, will continue to dominate the headlines. This leaves boards and buildings managers with the question: How do we prevent ourselves becoming the next headline?

Most organisations now know that they need to implement a security program to get in front of the cyber business risk. Getting it right is a challenge, particularly with the drive towards increased connectivity to achieve energy neutral regulations. This talk looks at the overall threat to business landscape and provides a route for designing a Smart Buildings improvement program.

The key takeaways from this talk include understanding the building blocks and processes required to make sure you stand a chance of not becoming the next headline.
