Hackers Don’t Have A Visitor Pass for Your Smart Building
The proliferation of IoT devices in smart buildings provide hackers with unprecedented access. From security cameras to lighting to even energy management solutions, hackers have an abundance of devices to find a weak entry point and execute an attack. Today’s connected business is at more risk to have intellectual property stolen. As a result, protection of the smart building environment is paramount to protecting a device-based ecosystem. Failure to do so puts the company at risk and, subsequently, that of the ecosystem.
This session provides a view of security threats within a smart building environment. Specifically, it will take a look at the devices within the ecosystem to understand where the attack vectors lie within the ecosystem as a whole. This session will highlight the following key topics:
- Devices and Their Management – Smart buildings are built from devices. These devices collect data, present information and services as well as provide the underlying infrastructure over which the smart building network operates. Ultimately, the device is the primary entry point into any ecosystem and the most accessible point for a hacker. Securing these endpoints is critical to ensuring the integrity of the ecosystem.
- Device Security Features and Their Accessibility –While security features may be present on a device, access to those features may vary greatly by platform. Knowledge and access to available security features is critical to creating secure smart building ecosystems.
- Device Threats and Their Impact – This section will outline threats, the types of attacks that are most common and strategies to prevent hackers from gaining access to devices.

Implementing battery-free RFID’s for the more efficient enterprise
Can drones find missing items? Every year, companies lose billions of dollars due to misplaced items and faulty inventory records in their warehouses. Consider that the smallest Walmart warehouse is larger than 17 football fields, making it impossible to keep track of all items in the warehouse. This talk from Yunfei Ma, the Postdoctoral Researcher from MIT behind RFly, a drone-based wireless system that can scan and locate items in warehouses.
