The IT Security Expo and Congress 2019 takes place in Nuremberg from 8-10 October and experts from Bosch will be on hand on Stand 506 in Hall 10.1 to outline the company’s latest information security services for defending against cyber attacks.
Cyber criminals pose a threat to building security solutions. Today’s physical security systems are increasingly IP-based and run on the same networks as generic office and production IT systems.
“The growing use of IT, along with greater networks, is also making building security solutions potentially vulnerable to all of the same risks that plague the rest of the IT world, such as hacker attacks and malware,” explained André Heuer, who heads the information security operation at Bosch Building Technologies.
Continuing this theme, Heuer observed: “Particularly so when you’re talking about critical infrastructure, this interaction of IT and facility management makes it essential to find new ways in which to ward off cyber attacks. We want to help our customers expand their information security strategies to include physical systems.”
