Our Building Systems Cyber Security for IT Professionals Program was designed to bridge the gap between facility management (FM) and IT as they work together to secure building control systems (that perform either individually or under a single master system integration). These systems are typically combinations of mechanical, electrical, water, and gas assets (supported by FM) and IT assets (supported by IT). Cyber security and operational risks are inherent in these building technologies as they can become the target of hackers for the purpose of brand damage, disruption, pivot access to the corporate network, or hurting people in the building or the systems that support the building. Until recently, FM and IT have not typically worked together securing these systems. The courses in this program focus on the perspective of IT professionals and looks to build trust and understanding between FM and IT. Get a basic understanding of common networking principles in modern building technology control systems and Internet of things devices, learn basic control system protocols and operating parameters, and consider the challenges and disruptions caused by network changes and failures.

This introductory certificate was developed in partnership with Intelligent Buildings. Program and course content was developed in collaboration with GlobalDWS.
