The Cornell IT Security Office performed a risk assessment of campus utility and building control systems, including its electric generating plant, steam plant, chilled water plant, and drinking water system, and increased a number of "smart" building automation systems. The ITSO developed a new process for assessing these complex and diverse campus utilities environments. We will present the methodology of this new process, compare it to our previous process, and offer lessons learned from the project. We will also show how this sort of assessment process can be incorporated into the larger institutional risk management program.
