Cyber Risks for Construction

Supply Chain Attack

Construction companies often rely on a network of suppliers and subcontractors, and a cyber attack on one of these companies could have a ripple effect on the entire supply chain.

Contract Requirements

Construction contracts are starting to included clauses relating to cyber responsibility. Attacks may have contractual ramifications. 

Internet of Things (IoT)

Many construction companies are using IoT devices, such as smart construction equipment and sensors, which can introduce additional vulnerabilities into the network.

Data Breaches

Data breaches can have serious consequences, including the loss of sensitive customer information and the potential for financial fraud.

Phishing Attacks

These attacks involve sending fraudulent emails or messages in order to trick the recipient into providing sensitive information, such as login credentials or credit card numbers.

Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware attacks can disrupt operations and cause significant downtime, which can lead to delays in project timelines and potentially result in financial losses.

Construction Challenges

Critical timelines. Costly delays

Increasing innovation increases attack potential

Complex supply chain

Significant amounts of sensitive information

The Importance of Regular Testing

Every successful cyber attack begins with a vulnerability.

Regular testing can find these vulnerabilities before a threat tries to attack. Manual Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessments use the same methods as real attackers to determine where your weaknesses currently exist so that you can prioritize remediation efforts. These proactive efforts can ensure that when the real attackers try to hack you, the digital doors will all be sealed. Learn more here!

The Nivee External Vulnerability Scan (EVS) is a security assessment using specialized software to scan your company's external-facing systems and networks for potential vulnerabilities. The scan focuses on your company's internet-based services and checks against listed Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). New vulnerabilities are continually being added to the CVE register and it is very important that businesses ensure their systems stay up-to-date with the relevant CVEs.

Common oversights which lead to successful Cyber Attacks: 

  • Lack of awareness of CVEs present in their system(s)
  • Inadequate frequency of scans performed
  • Lack of patching, updating and upgrading
  • Constantly changing cyber threat landscape

The Nivee EVS proactively identifies and addresses vulnerabilities in your external-facing systems and networks which are typically the first line of defense against cyber attacks. By conducting regular external vulnerability scans, you can reduce the risk of a successful cyber attack and improve your businesses overall security posture.

Identify Vulnerabilities

Identify potential vulnerabilities in your company's external-facing networks, and report on patching issues, configuration errors and other common vulnerabilities.

Comply with Regulations

Comply with security regulations, such as PCI DSS, HIPPA, and other consumer protection laws.

Out of Date Resources

Our scans will be able to tell which resources are outdated and contain known vulnerabilities. The scan will outline any updates, upgrades and patching that is required across the environment. 

Protect Reputation

An external vulnerability scan can help to prevent cyber security incidents and protect your company's reputation.
