Details: Cybersecurity in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry is an ongoing conversation that has evolved significantly within the past 5 years as a result of the proliferation of Digital Transformation, Smart technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is becoming increasingly difficult, if not impossible, to purchase Facility-Related Control Systems such as HVAC, Utility Management Control Systems, and others that are not digital and IP-based. The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) program and the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) have made great strides in the recent years incorporating cybersecurity controls in newly developed guidelines and specifications for DoD projects. DoD published the long-awaited Unified Facilities Criteria 4-010-06, Cybersecurity of Facility-Related Control Systems in 2016. Since then, NAVFAC, AFCEC, and USACE have ensured compliance of this UFC for all Federal A&E design projects. The objective of this presentation is to provide our Society of American Military Engineers audience with useful and actionable cybersecurity information to help identify and resolve cybersecurity design challenges.
