Shoreditch, UK: The Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF) has announced that it has established a working group for smart buildings and appointed Alan Mihalic of Norman Disney & Young (NDY) as the group’s chair.
The formation of the working group extends the work of IoTSF into the enterprise domain. This further contributes to the Foundation’s mission to ensure fit for purpose digital security is not only provisioned by vendors, but also applied to best effect across the spectrum of IoT’s application space. The scope of smart buildings is a natural extension to the work already undertaken in consumer and domestic applications.
The goal of the Smart Buildings Working Group is to establish a comprehensive set of guidelines to help each of the supply chain participants to specify, procure, install, integrate, operate and maintain IoT securely in buildings. This includes intelligent buildings equipment and controls such as audio visual (AV), fire, HVAC, lighting and building security.
A further objective of the group is to ensure that the recommendations produced are globally applicable and are simple to adopt – fitting within existing processes wherever possible. To achieve this, the working group aims to open the channels of communication between building occupiers, facilities managers, engineers, designers and urban planners in relation to the cyber security challenges affecting building environments.
