ESD Tag Team Tackles Cybercrime

As building automation systems (BAS) become increasingly connected to the internet, chances for cybercriminals to gain access increase. At an upcoming conference sponsored by Building Operating Management, two ESD experts offer views on how to protect your facilities.

Cybersecurity Practice Leader Bryan Bennett and Automation Practice Leader Steve Brown will be presenting ”Cybercrime Is a Pain in the BAS: Protect Your Building Systems” at the National Facilities & Technology (NFMT) event later this month. The two will examine the risks that may be lurking in aging or unprotected hardware as well as ways to improve energy and cost savings.

NFMT 2022 will take place in Baltimore from March 29 to 31 and offers broad-based education for facilities professionals from every type of organization: government, education, commercial office, healthcare, retail, hospitality, and industrial.

Bryan Bennett has been evangelizing for better IT security strategies for over a quarter-century. His mission to protect organizations from the financial, reputational, and individual costs associated with cybercrimes fits well with ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.

Steve Brown focuses on helping clients achieve maximum results through the application of available technologies. His industry expertise helps ESD advance its mission to make society better.
