The age of IoT, IP and digital transformation are increasingly common across a range of industries and are revolutionizing them. No industry is immune, and most certainly, not ours.
Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.
Here is my annual reminder: October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM 2019). Held every October, NCSAM is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. Nowhere is this more important than within the built environment.
The past several years has demonstrated that device connections to buildings continue on an upward climb, delivering undeniable value to building owners, operators and now occupants alike. The rate of change can be attributed not only to diverse technologies but also changes driven by connectivity, data, increased business outcomes and expectations. For most, it is no longer a matter of “should we?” but “why aren’t we and when will we?”
