The Architecture, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) industry receives an average of 61 email cyberattacks per company within a three month period. 68% of construction vendors were unable to prevent security threats from entering their networks and endpoints; 20% of IT managers didn’t know how a threat breached their environment while 17% didn’t know how long it had been there. As a high-cash flow business, AEC companies must fortify their IT systems and educate their employees against cyberattacks. Cybersecurity safeguards the sensitive information of intellectual property, building blueprints, and clients’ proprietary assets from cybercriminals, and yet only 20% of the engineering industry has fully deployed security automation. Cybercriminals won’t stop, so AEC cybersecurity needs to start.
What is Cybersecurity for the AEC industry?
Cybersecurity services, such as risk assessments, infrastructure penetration testing, anti-virus software, and firmware patches, help thwart security breaches and prevent downtime. Incident response plans validate and eradicate threats to minimize damage and quickly get your AEC business running full steam ahead.
