PRE-CON: Commercial and Corporate Real Estate Cybersecurity Forum

Over the last three to four years, cybersecurity in the commercial and corporate real estate industry has become a topic of great interest. Each year, the threat of breaches increases as the IoT becomes more integrated into our daily activities. There are four distinct areas that building professionals must consider: 1) traditional IT cyber threats; 2) protection of real estate operational and transaction data; 3) smart, connected buildings; and 4) physical security. This forum will bring together industry thought leaders to address the most impactful cyber threats, leveraging experience and knowledge to set benchmarks for cyber security strategy.

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Cybersecurity Forum WELCOME / OPENING COMMENTS
Date: 6/13/2017    Time: 8:30am - 11:30am    Location: SD Marriott
This is the fourth year that Realcomm and IBcon have included a Cybersecurity Forum as part of the pre-conference events. As a result of high profile general cyber breaches, we felt it necessary to focus on the threats most relevant to our industry. Each year, we rely on our advisors to assist in identifying the most significant issues and to select the appropriate domain experts. This opening segment will feature our four advisors from diverse sectors in our industry including corporate real estate, commercial, professional services and government. This well-rounded group will provide opening comments for this important event.

Commercial and Corporate Real Estate Security THREAT UPDATE
Date: 6/13/2017    Location: SD Marriott
Every day, some form of cyber threat is announced in the news. Ransomware, denial of services, financial exploitation, data theft and infrastructure breaches are unfortunately all too common. To add to the problem, industry experts project that in the future, we may be short in excess of 300,000 candidates required to fill open cyber positions. This esteemed panel will include executives from the nation’s most notable cyber organizations to provide a status update on cyber activity over the last 12 months as well as prognostications of what major issues may loom in the near future.

Building Infrastructure Cyber STANDARDS AND PROCEDURES
Date: 6/13/2017    Location: SD Marriott
As every industry struggles to keep up with the ever-changing cyber landscape, the real estate industry is no different. Changing threat profiles, increasingly sophisticated adversaries and a shortage of domain experts make this a daunting task. One of the best defenses is to identify and implement standards to mitigate cyber risks for building infrastructures – many following common IT best practices. This includes policies and procedures for both internal and external service resources including standards for RFPs and service agreements. This instructive segment will share the collaborative efforts of several companies to create and promulgate standards for our industry.

Smart Building SOLUTION PROVIDER Cyber Collaboration
Date: 6/13/2017    Location: SD Marriott
Fundamental to the foundation of cybersecurity is knowing which technologies adversaries seek to exploit. In the business environment it would be switches, routers, workstations and servers. When it comes to building infrastructure, this list expands to include operational equipment such as controllers, gateways and other intelligent devices. Collaboration with the solution provider community is critical to decrease the threat landscape. Both traditional building automation providers and new IT entrants in the smart building space need to work with building owners to mitigate the risk. This segment will explore the potential for definitive industry collaboration.

Creating a CULTURE of Cybersecurity Awareness
Date: 6/13/2017    Location: SD Marriott
Given the large number of cyber attacks that happen each day, almost everyone is affected in one way or another. Between personal and business activities, clearly the question is not 'if' but 'when' you'll be impacted. The growing velocity of cyber attacks makes it apparent that we need a constant state of awareness regarding potential threats. A culture must balance the need for expanded awareness with policies that are not over-reactive or restrictive, avoiding the risk of impacting regular activities. This vital segment will explore the goal of creating a well-balanced cyber aware culture.

Cyber Innovation SHOWCASE
Date: 6/13/2017    Location: SD Marriott
With cybersecurity becoming more of an issue every day, organizations realize the necessity of increasing investment in technologies and services that can expand their defense against these threats. As new products enters the market at a prolific pace, it is difficult to identify truly innovative solutions.

    Operating Systems vs. Applications – Selecting the Base PLATFORM for a Smart Building
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm    Location: SD Marriott
    For the past three to five years, there have been a multitude of new entrants in the smart building marketplace. Many of these new solutions purport to “be the brains of the building” or claim they are the “building operating system.” The market has responded with some confusion in determining if a solution is truly an operating platform capable of data collection, aggregation, organization and control or simply an application that sits on top or over to the side. Understanding the difference is probably one of the most important decisions in a smart building project. This session will include thought leaders from some of the most experienced companies and newcomers to the industry, both of whom will continue to discuss and debate operating systems vs. applications.

    One Building One Network – A Status Report on the BASE BUILDING NETWORK
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 3:15pm - 4:15pm    Location: SD Marriott
    For the greater part of modern building history, most equipment found in buildings was analog and disconnected. Each performed a singular function but there was no reason to connect it to other systems. In today’s smart buildings, the concept of a base building network is becoming more mainstream every day. We are way past the debate of “should we do it?” and are now on our fourth or fifth of iteration of “how to do it.” One network or two, how systems are connected, controllers or at the edge, redundancy, business continuity, cybersecurity and revenue generating business models are just a few of the aspects that will be discussed. This high-level session will include some of the most advanced examples of building networks and provide insight into global best practices.

    SPACE UTILIZATION – Technology's Role in Uncovering the Truth
    Date: 6/15/2017    Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm    Location: SD Marriott
    One way to communicate the “state” of a building or tenant space is with occupancy/vacancy data. Over the years, with increasingly powerful mobile technologies and changing work and lifestyle habits, workplaces and retail spaces are finding themselves progressively underutilized. Recent data confirms the office utilization rate of corporate America is in the 35-40% range. Today, the metric is not total occupancy or vacancy, but utilization. In order to better measure this metric, technology is playing an expanding role. Cameras, access data, mobile phones, beacons, IR sensors and even seat monitors are helping to reveal the truth. This vital session will focus on the state of the industry, including the various methods and technologies being used to measure space utilization.

    TRACK: Top of Mind

    The number of topics and issues surrounding smart, connected buildings is daunting. From designing a building network to integrating parking systems into the strategy, there are many moving parts. Each year we spend an enormous amount of time in conversation with the industry to evaluate and determine which particular issues for that year might be. Numerous surveys and hundreds of conversations lead us to those designations. As a result of this process we are also able to identify those issues that come up repeatedly, and accordingly are on the minds of many people. This exciting track is designed to discuss those topics that are rising to the top and require focused discussion and debate. For anyone responsible for developing a smart building strategy, this track is key.

    INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

    Is Your Building Spying on You – Dealing With PRIVACY in Connected Buildings
    Date: 6/15/2017    Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm    Location: SD Marriott
    Most people remember 1984 by George Orwell, the dystopian novel about a surveillance society with no place to hide. Fast-forward to 2017 and many technologies mentioned in the book are here and getting smaller, less expensive and more powerful. Sensors in everything from chairs to lighting systems are allowing for enormous capabilities to track not just motion but also voice and video. Combine this extraordinary sensorization with analytics and AI and you have the potential for excessive breaches in privacy. While many people, especially younger generations, are less concerned with privacy, it is important to debate the unintended consequences. This will be the most compelling smart building privacy discussion of 2017.

    OPERATIONS Technology and INFORMATION Technology – Closing the Gap
    Date: 6/15/2017    Time: 1:30pm - 2:30pm    Location: SD Marriott
    There was once a time when IT and building operations had no reason to talk. After all, IT used to be about printers and workstations, and operations handled buildings systems such as HVAC and lighting. Recently this separation of powers is radically changing. Smarter building equipment, the increased adoption of building networks, IoT and the increased visibility of issues such as cybersecurity and privacy are bringing these two worlds together. It is no longer a matter of if, but when, the IT and real estate operations groups will collaborate on the consummate building design. For organizations that have made the transformation to an integrated strategy, they wonder how they ever did it any other way. This excellent session will feature the early adopters of IT and OT integration.

    TRACK: Building 'Big Data'

    Historically, the building automation industry was primarily "single system, single vendor, single building." While older traditional equipment provided some business information, it was rare that the data could be accessed and integrated into other platforms. In recent years, the idea of extracting data from building systems has become big business. Finding ways to access, retrieve, import and analyze data promised to provide great insight into how to operate more efficient and effective buildings. This avalanche of data brings a host of new issues and questions. Deriving value from the data and ownership and governance, security, new technologies and new approaches are all addressed in this important track.

    Building Data Analytics – Energy, Operations, Productivity or All of the Above?
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 11:45am - 12:45pm    Location: SD Marriott
    The building big data and analytics discussion has been progressing for about the last five years. Install a network, connect devices and the data begins to flow. In some cases, this has resulted in billions of data points being collected each week. As we have learned to collect and analyze the data, we are now searching for the highest and best use. Do we focus on energy, operations, productivity or all of the above? Perhaps we now have too much information and getting to the right data – to solve the most apparent business problems – is the challenge. This session will provide a spirited discussion on where we are on this hot topic. Data strategies, best practice case studies as well as a host of challenges will all be presented in this very timely and relevant session.

    Fighting Vendors for 'OUR DATA' – Another Challenge in the Smart Building Journey
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm    Location: SD Marriott
    One of the first and most important aspects of connecting building systems to a network is the ability to access and retrieve data from those systems. Data collection and the subsequent analysis is the first step in the journey which allows companies to better understand how to run the systems that run their buildings. Despite the growing demand for access to the data found in equipment, many are experiencing passive (or in some cases aggressive) lack of cooperation by system manufacturers. This instructive session will focus on identifying various accounts of this ‘data access denial’ as well as strategies to circumvent the problem. The discussion will also include how the industry can come together to help mitigate this problem.

    TRACK: Smart Projects by Type

    When technology and innovation are applied to any building there could be dramatic results. After all, every building has HVAC, lighting, security and other systems and amenities to keep it operational while providing occupants with a functional environment. However, understanding smart buildings becomes clearer when you examine more specific areas and types. Office buildings, malls and cities all have general (as well as distinct) ways in which they can utilize technology to impact both operations as well as how occupants engage with the space. This informative track brings together thought leaders from different market segments to talk about how technology will impact their unique type of real estate.

    INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

    TRACK: Energy

    An advanced energy management program continues to be one of the core building blocks of a holistic smart building strategy. Given the global focus on sustainability and the large-scale impact buildings have on energy consumption, it remains an important and evolving topic. Chapter One introduced basic building automation and metering; Chapter Two added integration and control into traditional systems; and Chapter Three ushered in the concepts of open, interoperable and integrated, thus representing even greater potential for energy savings. This instructive track will reveal ways to differentiate between the myriad of solutions available today, how to measure their effectiveness, integrating that information into larger smart building strategies, as well as other high-impact, smart building energy efficiency topics.

    INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

    NET ZERO Buildings – Are They the New Benchmark for Energy Efficiency?
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 5:00pm - 6:00pm    Location: SD Marriott
    When you talk to people about the goal of energy efficiency in smart, connected, high-performance buildings, the range for savings is between 10 and 30 percent. These numbers are an extraordinary achievement, but for many organizations it is only the beginning. There are a number of projects across the United States and the world that now boast of reaching Net Zero. This means that the building produces as much energy as it consumes. Grid connectivity and new technologies are making this more achievable each day. This session will gather the industry’s brightest thought-leaders who will present best practices in the area of Net Zero Buildings and discuss both the challenges and successes in this ambitious goal.

    EMS, EIS, Dashboards and More – Exploring the Options for Energy Management PLATFORMS
    Date: 6/15/2017    Time: 10:45am - 11:45am    Location: SD Marriott
    In the last few years, there has been an extraordinary increase in the number of companies that offer some form of data aggregation dashboard to represent the results of an Energy Information System (EIS). A quick Google search on the topic of “energy dashboard” will produce literally millions of results. This proliferation of seemingly undifferentiated solutions has caused confusion in the industry. Companies are struggling to understand the difference between Energy Management Systems (EMS), EIS, analytics, dashboards, point solutions and enterprise applications. In addition, issues covering integration to other systems such as analytics, demand response, and fault detection along with concerns about data integrity and data management are leaving a number of questions unanswered. This illuminating session will bring clarity to the EMS and EIS topics.

    DISTRIBUTED ENERGY Resources and MICROGRIDS – Understanding the Impacts to Smart Building Projects
    Date: 6/15/2017    Time: 1:15pm - 2:15pm    Location: SD Marriott
    The electric grid in the United States (and in many countries around the world) is old and in need of replacement. It is common to hear politicians talk about the need to upgrade infrastructure and electricity as part of that discussion. Next generation distributed microgrids may play a significant role in the future of smart buildings. New technology that promises to deliver electricity at efficiencies never before seen is now becoming a reality. Advanced storage, distribution networks and new storage systems such as batteries and flywheels are resulting in advanced levels of digital precision. This instructive session will evaluate the status of the world’s most sophisticated microgrid projects and the benefits to building owners and operators.

    RENEWABLE Energy – Its Role in a Comprehensive Smart Building Strategy
    Date: 6/14/2017    Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm    Location: SD Marriott
    Whether it is because of lower and more predictable costs, or a desire to lower GHG emissions, renewable energy continues to gain more prominence each year. The technology continues to improve and costs are aligning with more traditional options. In the early stages of renewable energy building, owners were reluctant to consider these options, but that is changing. Solar, wind and other renewable energy sources are now available for not only large, but small projects. Combine renewable energy with consumption reduction building technologies and the results are extraordinary. This significant session will focus on renewable energy sources as they pertain to building projects and will discuss and debate the technology maturity and financial feasibility.

    TRACK: Cyber – Smart Buildings and Physical Security

    There are many different aspects of cyber that a commercial real estate IT professional must manage. To date we have concluded that there are four distinct categories of cyber issues to be understood and addressed: 1) traditional IT threats that all companies deal with such as ransomeware and phishing; 2) breaches that specifically deal with data or transactions specific to real estate, such as tenant information and lease payments; 3) security risks that involve smart building, IoT and all building systems; and 4) physical security issues ranging from surveillance to access control. This important track will deal specifically with the issues surrounding SMART BUILDINGS and PHYSICAL SECURITY.
