New cyber guidelines to safeguard construction sector

News and information from the Advent IM team.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) have launched new sector-specific cyber security guidance pitched at small and medium-sized businesses operating in the construction industry.

The Cyber security for construction businesses guide has not been compiled in response to any specific threat, but rather is a reflection of the fact that construction businesses present tempting targets for malicious actors because of the sensitive data they hold and the high-value payments they handle.

The tailored, practical advice reflects the building trade’s growing reliance on digitally enabled working, covering tools such as 3D modelling packages, GPS equipment and business management software. It also offers practical, stage-by-stage cyber advice for the construction process, from design to project handover, and sets out some of the more universal cyber threats that building firms face just as often as businesses in any other industry.
