1 Cyber Protection for Building Automation and Energy Management Systems

2 PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT Gone are the Days of Security through Obscurity Cyber threats and security compromises directed at building and facility control operations are swiftly becoming a monumental issue in the buildings industry. While cyber security has always been a concern when it comes to protecting traditional devices such as computers, routers and servers, innocuous devices such as thermostats, HVAC equipment, access control and lighting controls seemed to escape the attention of hackers. But a look at today s headlines inform us that building automation systems (BAS) are leading targets for compromise with a 42% increase in the number of cyber-attacks from 2011 to Attacks are from Outside and Inside Your Network Cyber security is a complex issue that has progressed alongside the BAS industry s mission for connectivity, interoperability and openness, attributes achieved by integrating disparate control systems with the IT network. This level of connectivity and integration has enabled building owners to achieve precise control over some of the largest expenses for any organization such as building operations, energy management and efficiencies, but it is these same attributes that now make these systems exponentially vulnerable to viruses, security breaches and attacks. Hacking, breaches and unauthorized access into facility automation systems is not just about turning lights on and off or raising the temperature a few degrees. Characterizing such possible disruptions as harmless mischief dramatically underestimates the value of these systems to the productivity, safety and overall bottom line of a business. If someone hacks the building automation system or energy management system, they now have an attack vector into the company network, and a hacked device can become a pivot point that can bypass existing network defenses. Attacks that originate in these systems are perceived as coming from within the secure and trusted IT infrastructure and thus explains why, on average, it takes a company 243 days to discover a cyber-attack has occurred.

3 Statistics are Showing Cyber Security is a Mounting Issue Average number of attacks per week increased to 102 (2012) vs. 72 (2011) 66% of organizations learn about a breach after hearing about it from an external source 35% of industrial control system security incidents were initiated through remote access 51% of companies struggle to prevent cyber attacks 49% of companies are poorly positioned to quickly detect attacks 34% of companies had more than one security breach in the past year that they were aware of * Contact Lynxspring for source list The Moment a Malicious Hacker Exploits a BAS/EMS, the Countdown to Chaos Begins The negative consequences that BAS/EMS-initiated cyber incidents can cause are disruptive and potentially catastrophic. Such events may impact occupant productivity and personal safety, disrupt critical processes, and shut down business operations entirely. The social implications can be as equally devastating with negative publicity and loss of customer confidence while the financial ramifications may be compounded with lawsuits and equipment replacement and repair. It is estimated that the average annualized cost of a cyber-breach for a company is $8.9 million 3. Building Automation Networks and IT Networks Should NOT be Treated Differently Building automation networks and IT networks should NOT be treated differently when it comes to cyber security and threat protection. Just like an IT network, building automation networks should have policies and procedures that must be continuously addressed throughout the whole system lifecycle using multiple layers of defense and protection. A comprehensive cyber security program leverages industry standards and best practices to protect systems and detect potential problems along with processes to understand current threats and enable timely response and recovery. Cyber security should be an integral part of the design of the automation system, not an afterthought or addendum. Potential Consequences of a BAS Cyber Attack Physical Uninhabitable facilities Uncontrollable and locked out systems Equipment damage and replacement Inefficient systems Sprinkler and smoke alarm failure Disabled elevators controls system Unauthorized penetration of access control systems Lighting failure Business Interruption of business and operations Introduction of malicious files and viruses into the corporate IT network Exposure and compromise of sensitive information Company reputation Litigation Attack vector into corporate network Occupant harm; loss of life Financial Loss

4 LYNX CyberPRO Real time, Continuous Cyber Protection for Building Automation and Energy Management Systems Cyber-threats remain one of the most insidious issues within the building automation industry today; threats are becoming more frequent, becoming increasingly sophisticated and are now at a point where we have legitimate and reasonable concern Lynxspring s LYNX CyberPRO, a cyber-threat protection solution is designed specifically for building automation and energy management networks. Lynxspring has partnered with Netop, the premier developer of secure remote access solutions for complex global IT environments, to create a simple, cost-effective additional layer of security and for the mechanical and electrical devices and systems that reside on the enterprise network including HVAC, lighting and utility measuring systems. LYNX CyberPRO creates shields of security, and layers of cyber security protection that re-enforces the integrity of the corporate firewall by eliminating attack surfaces created by exposed devices on the Internet and within the network. Designed with building operations in mind, LYNX CyberPRO creates pre-emptive threat protection for the devices and systems across a building network by securing, managing, controlling, tracking and monitoring all account access and activities. The solution supports leading building automation protocols with TCP/IP networks, open and legacy systems and can be accessed anywhere without exposing building system devices to the public internet. Terry Swope President, CEO of Lynxspring

5 Lynx CyberPRO consists of a CyberPRO Key and an encrypted LYNX CyberPRO Secure Connect Cloud connection. It is simple to install, configure and operate and does not require any changes to a device s existing network settings. There are three simple steps with setting up a key: 1. The Key is plugged into the corporate network. 2. Devices needing secure remote access are added to the Key. 3. Users are added to the Key. How it Works Lynx CyberPRO reduces the security risk by removing all devices from the public Internet, closes all the ports on the corporate firewall and eliminates the need to have to add and manage authorized users and third-party vendors to their active directory to allow VPN access into the corporate network. This hardens and re-establishes the integrity of the corporate firewall and still allows authorized users including third-party contractors secure remote access to the systems they were contracted to maintain. To gain secure remote access to these systems, the user logs into the encrypted Lynx CyberPRO Cloud. The user is authenticated via distinct checkpoints and presented with a list of Keys they have access to. The user then logs into the selected key, and once they are authenticated by that key, the key presents the user with a list of devices and randomly generated ports the user will use during the session. At no time does the user use IP addresses for the devices; they only use the randomly generated ports the key provides. During this session, an audit log is created by the key, recording everything the user is accessing. When the session is over, the key closes all of the ports.

6 LYNX CyberPRO is scalable and can be deployed on existing buildings or new construction for single or multi-facility environments. Installation of LYNX CyberPRO Key and LYNX CyberPRO Connect software is simple and designed to be deployed on live networks. A LYNX CyberPRO Key is installed on the network behind the firewall and configured to the LYNX CyberPRO Cloud. This is the single access point into the network and becomes a forensic tool for the entire building control network with an auditable access trail. Once a connection is approved by the LYNX CyberPRO Cloud, the LYNX CyberPRO Key creates a secure tunnel between the two devices by generating a list of devices and required ports for connection. A separate list of randomly generated ports for the listed devices is generated by the LYNX CyberPRO Connect software and is mapped to the list provided by the CyberPRO Key. With the ports mapped and forwarded appropriately, clients may use their standard BAS user interface or an Internet browser to connect and control the nodes connected to the LYNX CyberPRO Key. Establishing an Auditable Access Trail LYNX CyberPRO is scalable and can be deployed on existing buildings or new construction for single or multi-facility environments. It is a non-disruptive installation easily integrated on existing or new networks with no physical changes to the BAS network. LYNX CyberPRO maintains the integrity of a company s building automation systems, equipment and applications as well as the critical data employee records, customer data and intellectual property with a preventative threat protection layer that monitors all access points and activities.

7 LYNX CyberPRO powered by Netop is Customizable. Specify which devices are allowed remote access through single entry point Auditable. Forensic reports detail network traffic to device in and out of firewall Simple to use. Easily managed and implemented using a single-user interface Protocol-agnostic. Supports leading building automation protocols utilizing TCP/IP networks as well as open and legacy systems Scalable. Ideal for existing buildings and new construction; single facility or multi-facility environments Non-Disruptive. May be installed on new or existing networks with no physical changes to the existing BAS network Firewall Integrity. Devices are not exposed to the Public Internet and ports remain closed Isolated. Vendors are isolated and removed from the Corporate Active Directory Compliance. Adheres to multiple compliance regulations In combining efforts with Lynxspring on LYNX CyberPRO, we have created a single, secure, monitored and audited access point to building control systems. This will give authorized personnel timely and secure access to building data while reducing external threats to building automation systems Kurt Bager CEO, Netop
