Secured by Cimetrics is a comprehensive framework designed to address BAS (Building Automation System) cybersecurity threats in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT).
As the number of IoT devices and systems increase significantly in the coming years, BAS vendors, system integrators, facility managers and building owners have become more conscious of the risks posed by cybersecurity attacks.
As a leading provider of BAS connectivity solutions for almost 30 years, Cimetrics is well positioned to understand and address the needs of BAS industry players, which, when combined with Cimetrics’ extensive experience serving IT departments, provides a unique set of technologies, best practices, and resources to bridge these two worlds.

The New Deal for Buildings hosted a Cybersecurity Summit at the AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta on January 14, 2019.
The Summit brought together industry thought leaders to review the current status of cybersecurity in the BAS industry, discussed the impending release of BACnet/SC and other initiatives, and formulated an appropriate posture for the BAS industry in the security-conscious IT space.
Check out the presentation from our Senior Analysts – Lisa Zagura and Julianne Rhoads: “BE A BTU HUNTER: How Big Data Analytics Can Achieve Energy and O&M Savings While Improving Productivity, Comfort, and Sustainability at Laboratory Facilities”.
Fault detection and root cause analysis of big data provide a strategic approach to energy savings at high-performance healthcare, pharmaceutical, and university laboratory buildings. Insidious HVAC faults are often superseded by reactive maintenance. By analyzing building data, large scale operational issues can be mitigated, and persistent alarms can be minimized. The economic impact associated with these issues can be used to quantify building performance improvement potential.

Building Controls Cybersecurity — How to Eat the Elephant
While more than 80% of all building automation systems are connected to the Internet, more than 3/4 of real estate organizations don’t have any type of building cybersecurity plan. With millions of connected controls systems in every real estate segment including commercial, corporate, campus, government, and others it is hard to imagine that this is not a priority for all senior executives.
