How can Organizations Enhance Workplace Cyber Resilience

Construction Tech Review | Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Building owners and operators should educate staff members and users about good cybersecurity practices.

Fremont, CA: The businesses are witnessing phenomenal development as more consumers choose smart buildings for their convenience, security, and ability to save money. As a result of growing connection and IoT use, smart buildings are more vulnerable to cyberattacks if they do not get adequately safeguarded. Therefore, it is the responsibility of stakeholders to guarantee not just defense against cyberattacks but also the continuance of vital services and speedy recovery in the event of an attack. Listed below are some useful steps that owners and operators of smart buildings can follow to increase cyber resilience.

Create awareness

Raising people's awareness of cybersecurity strengthens the case for the plan. Building owners and operators should educate staff members and users about good cybersecurity practices. Then, they will be able to recognize dangers and steer clear of being duped by evildoers. They should get informed of the proper reporting process for threats as well. Stakeholders should keep in mind, though, that everything originates at the top and filters down to the lower levels. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure senior executives support cybersecurity objectives and set a positive example.

Have the right people in place

Having a security staff that can recognize and stop assaults is essential, in addition to developing a cyber-aware culture. To guarantee a smooth flow of procedures & effective executions, this team's roles and duties should get specified explicitly. Additionally, collaborating with a provider of cybersecurity solutions may significantly increase cyber resilience. Therefore, stakeholders in smart buildings should look for trustworthy partners to assist them in improving their capacity to handle a variety of possible risks.

Employ the right technology

To increase cyber resilience, security controls must get implemented. In this regard, the right technology can be very beneficial. For instance, employing intelligent alerts and cloud behavioral analytics technology can assist in identifying attacks based on a change in user behavior on the network. Furthermore, through its non-intrusive motion detection technology, Wi-Fi sensing can protect users' privacy and secure personally identifying information. Wi-Fi sensing data is also saved in encrypted form, making it extremely safe from harmful activity.

Ensure a secure supply chain

Introducing malware and other threats into smart building networks is possible due to third-party vendors. Therefore, vendor verification to make sure they have implemented security measures is crucial for constructing cyber resilience. Owners and operators of smart buildings should make sure that vendors follow the rules and specifications. They should also monitor and track all third-party-sourced components' vulnerabilities.
