Construction & Cyber Resiliency: What You Need to Know & What You Need to Do (March 2018)
March 1st, 2018 - Each day, our world becomes more and more interconnected through increased apps usage on mobile devices and storing more of our data in “the cloud.” With all the resulting benefits and efficiencies come an increasing amount of Cyber related threats – loss of intellectual property, compromise of employee PII, insider threats, and ransomware to name a few. As the construction industry leverages new technology to conduct business, it is not immune from these threats and the legal or financial impacts that result from a Cyberattack. Thank you to Stephen Mainello and RCM&D for hosting such a successful event! Amazing photos thanks to Adam Lowe of Adam Lowe Creative!
