Buildings Can Do Much More To Reduce Their Cyber Security Risk

The ultimate vision of mass hyper-connected smart buildings hosting hundreds of interconnected devices will not be possible without addressing a wide range of building specific cybersecurity issues. Each system, device, router, server, and gateway, including their multiple versions and iterations, introduces its own cyber security risk to the building. And, without strict segmentation, unauthorized access […]
