Cyber security guidance in Digital Engineering Series

Publication provides an understanding of how to carry out risk assessment and when to seek expert help

CIBSE has just published DE6.1:Cyber security in building services design to help those who commission, design, construct and operate built assets to understand the implications of security on building services design.

The implications for security may be national, commercial or private security, each of which have their own requirements.

DE6.1 considers the risks and threats around security, and examines these in the context of building services design. It looks at how such considerations should change the approach to design, and identifies the need for dedicated security experts to feed into the process.

As buildings’ internal systems become increasingly ‘smart’ and connected, they also become more vulnerable to cyber attack. This new publication will give readers an understanding of how to carry out a basic risk assessment and help them to know when to seek expert assistance.

All the current publications in the Digital Engineering Series, plus the six digital engineering online learning modules, are available at
