New standard helps protect IoT security devices

Security Systems

As the Internet of Things becomes more integrated with building systems and devices, the threat of a cyberattack increases. With the implementation of electronic physical security systems, there is less of a margin for error, as an attack against your network could jeopardize your facility’s assets.

Fortunately, electronic physical security systems can now be evaluated for their ability to fend off cyberattacks with UL’s new Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP). With the new UL 2900-2-3 Standard, UL CAP provides criteria for electronic physical security systems to assess software vulnerabilities and weaknesses, minimize exploitation, address known malware, review security controls and increase security awareness.

The criteria will help manufacturers create safer, more secure products and give FMs, system integrators and retrofitters specification benchmarks that mitigate risk.

“The electronic physical security market is the cornerstone of safety and security in facilities and organizations. Cyber risks in this space are an important factor to address in securing a facility,” says Rachna Stegall, Global Director of Connected Technologies at UL. “UL believes that our UL CAP services can provide specifications that are repeatable, reproducible and measureable with objective evidence that can support a manufacturer’s claim of security assurance in such an important component of an owner’s facility.”

The criteria can be applied to surveillance cameras, emergency communication systems, fire alarm systems, alarm receiving systems, intrusion detection systems and access control systems.
