Our CEO James Lee is going present at one of the sessions of the ASHRAE Annual Conference in Toronto: The Importance of Fully Adopting IT Industry Technologies and Best Practices

As control and IT networks continue to converge in commercial buildings, it is vital for the BAS industry to fully adopt the technologies and best practices that IT and Cybersecurity organizations have developed over the years. Adapting to this new reality is by far the best and most efficient way to deliver secure automation systems in buildings to meet and exceed the cybersecurity demands of enterprises of tomorrow. This presentation provides the landscape of IT technologies and practices important for BAS professionals to know in order to embark on secure automation projects. Learn more here
