Safety without barriers?
Wed 18 April 2:15pm | Business Solutions Stage
With recent incidents impacting on public spaces, we are at risk of over-reacting by turning our cities and buildings into unsightly fortresses. If this happens, the terrorists and the one-off malicious individuals have the upper hand.But we are also exposed to security from within, with theft still a significant issue. So how do we avoid this? Is it possible to establish a level of security that protects our safety and security without excessively intruding into our daily lives? Is there a balance between overt and covert security that workers and society at large find acceptable.
Protecting Smart Buildings from Cyber Attacks
Wed 18 April, 3:30pm | KONE Smart Building Theatre
The regularity of cyber attacks on organisations is on the increase, and it seems that as soon as existing security controls are made more secure, the hackers develop counter-measures to gain systems access. In the meantime, the attention of hackers is shifting from corporate networks to building management and control systems, since they are becoming more structured around new technologies and the Internet of Things. This makes critical building systems vulnerable to the same risks as corporate systems, with the potential for buildings to be totally shut down. This session examines the types of businesses most at risk, the key risk areas, and how these risks can be minimised.
How to maximise occupant safety
Thurs 19 April, 1pm | Business Solutions Stage
With recent high profile building fires, protecting building users against fire is at the forefront of our minds. The manner in which the building is designed, the materials used and how they are put together represent the first line of defence against a devastating fire. However, this is only part of the response to protecting user safety - ensuring that all the building safety features (such as fire escape routes) are properly maintained and ensuring that all building users know what to do in an emergency are essential components of fire safety. This session examines various processes that the facilities manager can implement to reduce the risk of fire and increase user safety.
