What is a Smart building?
Smarter buildings are well managed, integrated physical and digital
infrastructures that provide optimal occupancy services in a reliable,
cost effective, and sustainable manner.
Are they really smart or just connected?
Wired or Wireless?
• Cables no longer king
• WI-FI is everywhere
• Low power wireless
• Are they all secure?
Smart buildings set to grow
• The interest in smart buildings is only growing
• The rate of integration is growing
• With more smart buildings comes more risk
The Growth of Smart devices
• Smart meters being installed now
• More devices are being produced
• More systems are being integrated
Connected Buildings
• Buildings are now
connect to the internet
• This means everything is
connect to the internet
A controller in everyone's hands
• Fast becoming the default interface
for every system
• More computing power than men took
to the moon
• Very low penetration of anti virus
malware protection
The new key
• We use to have a separate key for
each system
• Now its just an app
• Near Field Communication (NFC)
is nothing new
• With Phones now using NFC this
opens many more doors
Six degrees of separation

System

Security issues

Building Management & Control systems

• Not traditionally interconnected
• Now being connected for monitoring and control as
part of sustainable and green buildings
• Little or no security
The Gatekeeper
• Your router is the first point of
defence
• Your phone is now the key
How can you secure a Smart Building?
• Limit access to the network
• Physically
• Network encryption
• Change default passwords
