Overview

The Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling more sophisticated capabilities through network-connected products and systems. As a result, life safety and physical security systems are becoming more interconnected. While there are wide-ranging benefits associated with this connectedness, there are also new risks, chief among them, cybersecurity.  

According to many recent reports and governments around the globe, not only is there a rise in the number of cyberattacks occurring — the sophistication of them continues to advance. It is imperative that life safety and physical security systems be evaluated for cybersecurity to help ensure performance, reliability, prevent damage to assets, mitigate risk, improve security, and maintain health and safety. While often not thought about, we all would like the peace of mind that they will work as intended when called upon in an emergency.
