Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Learn the threats and vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure to cybersecurity attack.  Definitions are provided for cybersecurity technical terminology and hacker jargon related to automated control systems common to buildings, utilities, and industry.

Buildings today are automated because the systems are complicated and so we depend on the building controls system (BCS) to operate the equipment. We also depend on a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to keep a record of what was repaired and to schedule required maintenance. SCADA, BCS, and CMMS all can be hacked.

The Cybersecurity Lexicon puts cyber jargon related to building controls all in one place. The book is a handy desk reference for professionals interested in preventing cyber-physical attacks against their facilities in the real world.

Discussion of attacks on automated control systems is clouded by a lack of standard definitions and a general misunderstanding about how bad actors can actually employ cyber technology as a weapon in the real world. This book covers:

  • Concepts related to cyber-physical attacks and building hacks are listed alphabetically with text easily searchable by key phrase
  • Definitions are providesd for technical terms related to equipment controls common to industry, utilities, and buildings―much of the terminology also applies to cybersecurity in general

What You’ll learn

  • Get a simple explanation of cybersecurity attack concepts
  • Quickly assess the threat of the most common types of cybersecurity attacks to your facilities in real time
  • Find the definition of facilities, engineering, and cybersecurity acronyms

Who This Book Is For

Architects, engineers, building managers, students, researchers, and consultants interested in cybersecurity attacks against facilities in the real world. Also for IT professionals getting involved in cybersecurity responsibilities.
