Cybersecurity Challenges Lighting Industry by Craig DiLouie

Connected lighting and the Internet of Things (IoT) promise extraordinary enhanced value for buildings, but this connectivity introduces data privacy and security risks. These issues are growing in importance in the lighting industry, which has the advantage of adopting established best practices but may need to accelerate its learning curve.Networked lighting controls is essentially a network enabling communication between devices. These systems are often intelligent, as devices are increasingly built around microprocessors. If the lighting network connects to other networks or the Internet, the consequences of hacking are more severe, requiring higher levels of security. What specific cybersecurity measures are built into the system, and how they’re implemented, define how secure a given networked lighting control system is.
