[ON DEMAND] Cybersecurity for Construction - Part 5: Cyber Scams and Social Engineering
Cybersecurity for Construction - Part 5: Cyber Scams and Social Engineering
Cyber and social engineering scams are up over 900% nationally and some are very specific to the AEC industry. Since major fires destroyed many communities in several western states and due to increased construction during the pandemic over the past 18 months, construction materials have become more costly and, in some instances scarce making them more valuable to AEC companies and to those that want to steal these resources.
In this class we will look at some real-world case studies where the AEC industry has lost millions of dollars in resources, technology and personnel due to scams and social engineering. We will look at methods to identify these threats, train unwary employees and develop tactics to minimize the impact to your organization.
After watching this webinar, we recommend scheduling your first appointment for free one-on-one consulting through the Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center. You can begin by registering at www.pikespeaksbdc.org/consulting.
