February 21, 2019 — The Internet of Things Security Institute (IoTSI) announced recently that it has released an IoT Security Framework for Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure. Alan Mihalic President of the IoT Security Institute says the objective of the IoTSI ‘s to provide the cyber and privacy frameworks that can be implemented from the base build through to the build completion.

“The goal of the IoT security Institute is to establish a comprehensive set of guidelines to help each of the supply chain participants specify, procure, install, integrate, operate and maintain IoT securely in Buildings, Smart Precincts and Cities. This includes intelligent buildings equipment and controls such as audio visual (AV), fire, HVAC, lighting and building security.”

“Buildings are working spaces, information portals and community information exchanges that require appropriate security controls to meet their future potential. The IoT Security Institute is focused on ensuring that recommendations produced are globally applicable and simple to adopt – fitting within existing processes wherever possible. To achieve this, the IoTSI opens the channels of communication between building occupiers, facilities managers, engineers, designers and urban planners in relation to the cyber security and privacy challenges affecting building environments.”

In a Smart Cities age, this includes maintaining data confidentiality, privacy and public safety levels that meet community and corporate expectations. This can only be achieved by a globally available Cyber Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure Framework.” adds Mihalic.
