Federal Government Building Management Systems

Definition

Building Management Systems(BMS)/Building Automation Systems (BAS) serve crucial roles in maintaining safe and effective operation of Federal Civilian facilities both at home and abroad. Yet, these systems are often the overlooked aspects of the security of the mission, regardless of whether that mission is an Embassy, NASA, a postal facility, or even a hospital.

Problem Statement

The interruption of any BMS can often impede mission critical operations. Disrupting these functions can bring a downstream impact to operations. Today, BMS have grown, increasingly connect to and are controlled via the internet, have remote access, and commonly use insecure protocols and legacy systems. Without adequate security controls, they can be uniquely vulnerable to cyber threats and can be used as a stepping stone into the rest of the OT network, sitting dormant until “trigger” time. Further compounding these issues are visibility limitations, as Federal Government in general struggles to know what assets they have – both domestically and on foreign soil.

Solution

To eliminate many of these core challenges, Claroty can assist Civilian agencies in applying OT-specific security.  Using the Claroty purpose-built OT security portfolio, you can 1) gain visibility and vulnerability insight into your building and campus BMS assets;  2) segment the network with least impact to the OT network, 3) secure remote access for staff and contractors, 4) maintain protection across assets by monitoring for any change to the devices, communication patterns, anomalous communications within each protocol, and misconfigurations, providing alerting and audit trails, and 5) extend existing IT security controls and governance to OT.

US Government facilities at home and abroad rely upon power, water, wastewater and other services provided by the utility providers of the U.S. or other countries in which they are operating. It’s important to remember these functions – whether considered part of the Government’s facilities or not – in addressing the cybersecurity and integrity of US Government mission critical operations.

Problem Statement

The interruption of any integral power, water, communications or other utility-provided service can often impede mission critical operations. Suffering from personnel shortages, budget constraints and competing priorities, regardless of regulations mandating cyber security, today these  services vary widely across country, region, or locality in their cyber security maturity. Without adequate security controls, they can be vulnerable to cyber threats and as such, a weakest link in a Government facility’s or mission’s cybersecurity efforts. And adversary access can sit dormant until ‘trigger’ time.

Solution

Claroty works with the broader public and private sectors to see the full picture of Operational Technology (OT) that enables US Government operations. Claroty’s OT security solutions consider every device – including those belonging to these easy-to-overlook services - of a cohesive cyber security plan. Our solutions enable you to identify threats to, vulnerabilities within, and remediations to vulnerabilities for all of the OT functions affecting your mission.

Entry Control Facilities (ECF) and Access Control Points (ACP) at US Government facilities at home and abroad are the first line of defense in securing U.S. Government infrastructure anywhere.  These facilities and functions vary in their ECF/ACP capabilities, from active barriers to cameras to automated entry systems. Those that are ‘connected’ also rely upon the facility’s electrical power, data and communication infrastructure often not under the Federal Government’s direct control. It’s important to remember these functions – whether considered part of the Government’s facilities or not – in addressing the cybersecurity and integrity of US Government mission critical operations.

Problem Statement

ECF/ACP capabilities themselves are increasingly interconnected technology environments. Cyber adversaries can use the digital domain to attack such physical infrastructure as part of a chain of events to diminish or disrupt mission systems and operations. With an evolving threat landscape, together with greater connectedness, the cyber risks facing these systems as steppingstones into other Government functions are growing and should be considered as part of an Agency’s cyber plan.
