Research from Harvard Business Review and Microsoft found that 60% of successful cyber breaches come through building systems like VoIP, surveillance recording cameras, business machines, HVAC, or even elevators and other IoT.
Building systems technologies vary so much that NIST was unable to create a standard, but identified 49 ways they fall short for interoperability, and 55 manual configurations. That’s a complex, labor-intensive problem to secure.
Today, IT and cybersecurity leaders are putting building systems on subnets or separate networks, using IT security questionnaires, etc. Most don’t have the bandwidth to enforce all of NIST’s considerations and manual controls.
IT would love to manage building systems cybersecurity risk, but they have limited ability to support and manage them, because these devices are manufactured outside of traditional IT protocols. It’s then left to facilities or procurement, who don’t understand cybersecurity as well as IT.
