- Identifying and reporting on cybersecurity risks among existing building control systems
- Maintaining an accurate inventory of all building control assets through continuous monitoring
- Identifying all users of these systems and their level of access, including a historical record of their activity
- Maintaining a current off-site backup in the event of a breach, such as a ransomware attack
- Providing standardized reporting to comply with regulatory requirements such as SOC 2, RMF, or ISO standards

Lynxspring’s deep understanding of technology and connected building control systems and its collaborative approach is uniquely complimentary with Totem’s “trusted” approach to critical risks in in the built environment, equipment inventory data, backups and reporting,” said Marc Petock, Lynxspring’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer.
