Cyber security in the construction industry: How secure is your data?

In this month’s issue of ¬†Building Congress & Exchange‘s newsletter, The Exchange, Hertzbach was featured in a discussion about cyber security in the construction industry. Michael Jackson, Director of Information Technology for HIT Solutions (a division of Hertzbach) shared information on threats beyond traditional spam and phishing attacks. For example, “social-engineering hacks” happen when hackers closely research their targets and pose as the victim’s boss or business associate while convincing them to hand over personnel records or network pass codes. The article states that “for a small construction company, lax cyber security can leave you vulnerable to ransom threats, disruption of computer service, compromised financial records, lost trust with clients and even lost contracts.”
