Cyber Challenges Facing Construction Firms

  • The way Construction works sees projects delivered over a wide network of businesses, suppliers and workers spread across multiple locations.
  • As the industry becomes more data rich the more appealing a target it becomes. The more data points, the more possible points of failure.
