Securing Your Building Management System
Jeremy Morgan, Industrial Defender

With all the talk of sophisticated adversaries and evolving threats to users and devices – what about threats to building management systems? Jeremy Morgan of Industrial Defender discusses this threat landscape and the role of automated tools to defend it.

Morgan, a principal risk and solutions consultant, says the key threats are from third parties and insiders. “It’s not a new theme,” he says. “Cybercriminals are locking people in buildings or locking people out of buildings. They're destroying HVAC systems.”

In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Morgan discusses:

  • Emerging cyberthreats to building management systems;
  • Gaps in current defenses;
  • The role of automation in detection and response.

In his role as principal risk and solutions consultant at Industrial Defender, Morgan helps ICS asset owners build a strong foundation to apply security controls in OT environments. With a diverse career ranging from compliance management at a utility to cybersecurity product management for a major OEM, he has over 20 years of experience in IT and OT cybersecurity.
