Cybersecurity and Privacy Series: OT Cybersecurity (Part II)
Cybercrime (especially ransomware) has increased dramatically in recent years. The commercial real estate industry is as vulnerable as anyone to threats to data and building systems that keep their organizations running. The hybrid workplace presents additional challenges, as IT systems have now expanded to employees’ home internet environments. This series examines the very real cybersecurity threats that exist in the built environment and explores strategies and best practices to combat attacks and minimize the overall risks.
The built environment faces unique cyber challenges since many IT-focused frameworks do not work for operational technology in connected buildings. This session reviews the threat landscape for the built environment and cyber best practices for OT systems.
