Cyber Security for Intelligent Buildings

This article examines the evolution of intelligent building technologies and outlines the challenges that building owners, operators and managers face when securing their facilities. It draws on findings from an industry survey conducted in August 2015 by the Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), with more than 500 respondents involved in IT management, operations, facility management, security and compliance. This article provides a definition of intelligent buildings, examines the evolution of smart building technologies, describes the emerging cyber security risks in intelligent buildings and provides an overview of CABA survey results. The survey itself provides a synopsis of cyber security trends, a brief survey of cyber security risks, an analysis of the cyber security market through a number of other industry surveys and examines how cyber security solutions should be adopted. The survey also provides a series of short-, mid- and long-term recommendations concerning the creation of an actionable industry roadmap.
