Totem is an OT (Operational Technology) systems risk management SaaS platform creator of products and services, enabling full cybersecurity assessment, remediation, operation continuity, network security, user administration and compliance monitoring for any OT system installed in global Commercial Real Estate (CRE) property portfolios.
Today millions of non-residential buildings globally, contain intelligent and smart IoT OT systems including, HVAC, Lighting, Access, CCTV, Security, Fire and Safety, Vertical Transportation etc. Increasingly these OT systems and their down stream devices are accessible with remote “cloud” based applications enabling the leveraging of analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning to more efficiently and effectively manage the built space for the buildings’ occupiers and owners.
This represents over 10,000,000 OT systems presenting a very large cyber attack surface for bad actors. This is why there has been a rapid rise in instances of OT system cyber-attacks globally, each instance costing from 10’s of thousands to millions of USD to recover from.
Totem’s products and managed services seamlessly bridge the gap between the fragmented OT systems industry and the building’s managers, users and owners Chief Information Officers (CIO) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISO).
Now OT Systems vendors, contractors and managers can operate and maintain their systems in a cyber-safe Totem TrustedTM manner that conforms to internationally recognised standards such as the NIST (National Institute of Science and Technology) Cybersecurity Framework delivering meaningful risk status ratings recognised and respected by CIOs and CISOs around the world.
With Totem’s cybersecurity risk management services Conserve It will be able to empower its regional channel partners to expand their business in offering Totem Trusted managed services to both existing and new end clients.
Conserve It is able to provide all the necessary local Totem training and support.
