Smart Buildings: Basic NIST Cybersecurity Framework Integration into OT
Applying standards to secure your organization
Building control systems have traditionally not followed any form of formalized standards. For the most part, vendors have installed systems as they saw fit, and installations varied from designer to designer, programmer to programmer. Even now, there are no set standards for installing building control systems. But for these critical systems to be secured, standards must be implemented to form basic best practices that will need to come from the end user / owner of the system.
This white paper explores how the NIST Cybersecurity Framework can help organizations lower risk and vulnerability and outlines common challenges and best practices to employ when integrating the framework into your operational technology (OT).
This white paper is the fifth in a series, “Building Resistance: A Look at OT, IT and Mitigating Risks.”
