Physical security and other building control systems are core elements of intelligent buildings. They are used to control power, monitor fire and safety, operate elevators, secure workspaces, and control operations. While they used to be stand-alone and proprietary systems, they now are interconnected, use open protocols, and are finding their way onto networks that can be accessed by individuals anywhere in the world. Because these systems are increasingly coming under cyber attack, unique measures are needed to address this risk. Explore the vulnerabilities that can be exploited and the measures that can be used for defense.
