Safety in building automation
Building automation is nowadays an important component for a more sustainable operation of the building sector and thus it is impossible to imagine life without it. Due to the increasing networking of systems in building automation and new functions such as building control technology in the cloud or the linking with IoT platforms, the risk of cyberattacks and third-party access is growing, which in the worst case leads to the shutdown of building technology systems.
Therefore, the requirements for safety in building automation are also growing. The requirements can be divided into two areas: Operational security and IT security or cybersecurity.
Operational safety for building automation systems
Operational security includes measures such as redundant systems and ensures that all systems function smoothly even in the event of a failure. This protects against unexpected interruptions and other problems that can affect the automation system. Event traceability is also a component of operational reliability – allowing potential errors or problems in the system to be identified more quickly.
IT security in building automation
IT security or cybersecurity ensures protection against third-party access and cyberattacks. These include methods such as encryption, two-factor authentication and firewalls, to name just a few examples. This is especially important to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access and to ensure the integrity of the system.
Safety is a matter of course for us
With our solutions, we protect DEOS systems from cyber attacks and other threats by taking IT security into account in all technical and organizational measures. These include, for example, firewall functions, encrypted communication or multiple authentication and much more.
