Cyber Security

Cyber security is not just an IT issue, it’s the responsibility of all of us who work in the construction industry.

What’s different about cyber security in construction?

Digital resources

Risk experts consistently rank large-scale cyber-attacks and data fraud among the top five most likely risks around the world and among the top three in the U.K. While the cost from cyber-crime is growing sharply, investment in cyber security is growing much more slowly.

Cyber security can be defined as the ‘the protection of your digital environment from unauthorised access and ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of your systems’.

It refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorised access.

Within the construction industry, many stakeholders, from contractors and sub-contractors to architects, engineers and surveyors, have access to shared IT platforms in a way that is unique to the industry.

The benefit of these networks is that they provide the industry with fully automated connectivity, allowing communication and access to shared data in ways not imagined a decade ago.

Unfortunately, this increased efficiency also results in an upsurge in risk. Take our free one hour e-learning module on cyber security to learn more.
