White Paper: Smart Building Cybersecurity

Design Approach for Multi-stakeholder Environments

Smart Buildings are increasingly at risk for cybersecurity and ransomware attacks that come with significant expense and the potential to halt facility operations and put lives at risk.

Stakeholder engagement during the early design phase of a smart building is critical to ensuring constructability, efficiencies, operability,
and maintainability of smart building technologies. The same is true when protecting smart buildings against cyber intrusions and attacks.

This white paper describes proven processes for multiple smart building stakeholders to come together during the early design phase to achieve a common vision and parameters for improving cybersecurity.
