CRE Cybersecurity Forum

October 26 | 11:45 am - 1:15 pm | Virtual

Cybersecurity as it impacts the built environment is one of the most serious concerns for building owners and operators. The ever-increasing number of managed and unmanaged entry points to building data and operational systems present unique challenges associated with securing smart buildings and facilities. With real estate owners and operators now dealing with an unprecedented pandemic that is affecting real estate portfolios regionally and globally, unique challenges on effective cybersecurity protocols for remote work environments and critical infrastructures arise. A new-found appetite for invasive technologies, such as contract tracing and health scanning, add to the new complexities of cybersecurity and privacy strategies. The CRE Cybersecurity Forum will assess cybersecurity best practices for the built environment’s next normal and bring together industry thought leaders to address the most high-impact cyber threats and OT ransomware attacks building owners and operators face today. Much of the content for this event will be developed by the ongoing work of the Real Estate Cyber Consortium (RECC).

SESSIONS

Cybersecurity and the Built Environment: INCIDENT SUMMARY Year in Review
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 11:45 am - 12:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Rapidly advancing technology to enable smart homes, buildings, and industries is outrunning the security needed to protect our lives, privacy, and resources. Increasingly, we depend on integrated, digital control systems to govern and monitor all aspects of our daily lives, including our critical infrastructure and commercial real estate. While digital technology improves efficiency, the downside is exponentially increased vulnerability to cyber exploitation or attack. Whether it is a nominal incident perpetrated by a mischievous individual or a massive, coordinated breach to strike fear in our customers, it is critical that we stay informed on cyber threats and their implications and there is no better way to understand what the threat landscape looks like than to review what has been happening in our industry. For this session we’ve invited The Honorable Lucian Niemeyer currently working many of these issues for the federal government in the Office of Management and Budget to address emerging threats, documented attacks, and the impact and relevance to building owners and operators.
