Chartwell Secure, our new comprehensive security package, is designed to protect building energy management systems (BeMS) from attack by hackers. The package includes features to minimise the risk of attack, including dial-in BeMS support and 24/7 remote PC maintenance and health monitoring.
Hacking is an ever-growing global threat, yet BeMS network security is often ignored. Is this really a problem? Yes. Target, a US retailer, was hacked via an insecure BeMS network in 2013, leading to a data breach totalling 70 million records. Google’s Australian HQ was attacked in 2014; insecure and out-of-date head-end PC software permitted hackers to gain access to building plant.
“An unprotected BeMS can offer hackers a back door into building plant, services and even main corporate IT systems,” explains Guy Bowen, Chartwell Secure implementation specialist. “The risk is very real. Chartwell Secure brings together cutting-edge technologies, our own in-depth BeMS expertise and a collection of industry-leading features to give clients total peace of mind when it comes to BeMS security.”
The risks of an unprotected BeMS being targeted by hackers are significant. Potential problems include:
“We want to get your facilities protected as quickly as possible,” says Guy. “We’ve designed an efficient three-step approach to make the process straightforward. We’ll assess your current BeMS set-up; carry out detailed risk assessments and implement the appropriate Chartwell Secure package; and then monitor your BeMS in line with your PPM contract.”
Chartwell Secure is affordable, effective and available now.
