Securing Building Management Systems
An often-forgotten area in the enterprise network which poses a significant risk to your organization if compromised are Building Management/Automation Systems (BMS/BAS). These IoT and industrial control systems which are integral to realizing "smart" and efficient buildings and facilities include Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning (HVAC), energy management, surveillance, fire safety, physical access controls, electric car charging systems, and other connected systems. As these systems undergo digital transformation and become more connected, the risk associated with cyberattacks also increases. Organizations need to act today to learn more about this growing risk and to include securing BMS/BAS in their enterprise cybersecurity strategy.
