Within the government facilities sector, there has been an increase in the number “smart” facilities – via construction, modernization, and legislation – that are intended to enhance energy management, create operational efficiencies, and enable remote accessibility for operators and managers. The internet-connected camera systems, access control systems, elevators, etc. at high-risk facilities have opened an alternate access point for hostile actors to carry out an attack. DHS’ Federal Protective Service (FPS) has incorporated a tiered approach to assessing the cyber and physical security risks to its facilities. In this session, FPS will provide an overview of the types of questions, analysis, and findings it has incorporated and generated from its cyber-physical security assessment methodology.

Participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish the types of threats and vulnerabilities inherent in facility systems, such as cameras, elevators, access controls, etc. and discuss best practices among the security community
  • Recognize the Federal Protective Service’s assessment methodology used to evaluate the cyber-physical security risks to its facilities
  • Explain the cyber risks to facilities and recommendations on how to approach mitigation of those risks as presented by the Federal Protective Service
