Who has access to data? How often do employees change their passwords? Are you still using default passwords for building systems? Which systems do third parties have access to? Who do you call if your property suffers a ransomware attack? What about a data breach? These are just a few of the growing number of questions related to cybersecurity in the real estate industry.
The Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada (BOMA Canada) has taken a leadership role in educating and helping to protect the real estate industry from cybersecurity threats. A new Cybersecurity Governance Guide has been released by BOMA Canada and is intended to introduce building managers and owners to the key elements and suggested steps for establishing effective cyber security governance.
Developing a cybersecurity governance program is critically important for real estate owners, managers, and operators, as buildings are more interconnected than ever before. This new guide will ensure property professionals are well prepared to protect the assets and tenants they serve.
