Many people are still under the assumption that the construction industry is not at risk for a cyber-attack because cyber criminals are only looking for personal information, such as credit card data, that construction companies do not usually keep on record. This is no longer the case.

In regards to the construction industry, hackers can bring projects crashing to a halt by infiltrating computer networks that hold information that is critical to the company’s operations. Examples of the types of information that are attractive to cyber-attackers include:

  • Blueprints and project plans
  • Employee information including benefits packages
  • Financials, banking and payroll
  • Vendor and third-party data

Previously, members of the construction industry did not believe that a cyber-attack could happen to them. However, attackers are industry agnostic and have monetized the destruction of company operations, holding them for ransom or initiating fraudulent wire transfers. It is no longer becoming a matter of if, but when.
