Building Cyber Resilience in Smart Building Management Systems - Friday, July 30, 2:30 PM ET
Session sponsored by WSP

Many FMW sessions this year have focused on integrating smart technologies into facility planning and operations to enhance efficiency and improve mission support. While offering great advantages, recent headlines reporting the shutdown of critical systems around the world due to cyber attacks reminds facility managers that "smart" must also be safe and secure. The closing panel will discuss the programs available both in the Department of Defense and in the private sector to mitigate the risk to facilities supporting critical missions.
