The rise of cyber related attacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) infrastructure has made it increasingly vital to have cybersecurity protocols in place to support functional safety and safety-related solutions in commercial or residential buildings and industrial processes. As building and process automation increasingly involves linking equipment together in an open network architecture, the safety and security risks created by Internet connectivity should be a foremost concern of stakeholders such as product design professionals, building managers, owners and system integrators.
In this whitepaper we explore:
- Advantages and vulnerabilities of IoT and IIoT
- How to help assure Functional Safety and security
- Supply chain mandates
- IEC 62443 cybersecurity standards and evaluation
