Improved building system technology is making today’s smart buildings safer, more energy efficient, and more attractive to tenants. But ESD, now Stantec Studio Leader and Senior Security Consultant Coleman Wolf says building automated system (BAS) improvements could come with new vulnerabilities.

ESD expert is slated to present at an ASIS International webinar focused on the risks associated with the increasingly complex and interconnected systems of modern smart buildings.
ESD Studio Leader for Security Systems Coleman Wolf will be presenting “Understanding Cybersecurity Risks to Facility Infrastructure” during the upcoming online-only event on July 28 at 11:30 a.m. CT. As building owners and managers drive to achieve greater efficiencies and to improve occupant experience with modern control systems, they may not be fully aware of potential security risks they are introducing to their facilities.
Learning objectives for the session include:
- Recognizing the types of building control systems at risk
- Identifying the nature of the vulnerabilities related to these systems
- Understanding the potential vulnerabilities
These systems are increasing in quantity and complexity. These building control systems have the potential to introduce security risks that extend beyond what most people realize so it is important to understand what they are, why it is a concern, and how we got to this point before we can begin to address the problem.
Registration for the free event is open to both members and non-members of ASIS.
Coleman Wolf shares his knowledge from over 25 years of security management and security engineering experience to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
