The construction industry is the backbone of the British economy, making up 7% of the UK’s GDP. Although not a sector traditionally associated with technology, times are changing.
With projects increasingly managed remotely and responsibility for employee data, tenders, property proposals, plans, drawings and client data make them an attractive target for cybercriminals.
Studies have found that whilst the construction industry has stepped up its investment in cybersecurity, spending an average of £3,750 per firm, it lags significantly behind other sectors. Indeed, where spending is allocated, it’s often in the wrong places, with 90% of breaches occurring as a result of human error.
With an extensive supply chain and potentially thousands of employees, there are countless entry points for cybercriminals to exploit.
