Protecting Buildings from Cyber Attack PT2
In our second article for KNX Today looking at protecting buildings from cyber attack we explore tactics to protect BMS and head ends.
Over the last two years we’ve seen an increase in the number of attacks against automated buildings. Many of these attacks, including the ones that have made the headlines, have occurred because of the lack of security added to the BMS when installed.
It’s worth talking to the client about security from the early stages of the project as this will help identify what kind of security is appropriate. Most of the BMS security measures we discuss in the article are low cost and fairly simple to implement. Some of your larger projects will warrant additional security measures, for example if the project includes building access control, and again we can help here too. We can work on your behalf, identifying the best security measures to take, with your client.

Also, our white paper looking at the best way to provide remote connections to BMS can be found here, it’s well worth a read.
