Protecting digital asset data from cyber threats

View our recorded webinar featuring cyber specialists PA Consulting and Secura - 11 February 2020

Asset information can be your organisation’s most precious commodity, often more valuable than the actual built asset itself. And as such, the more sensitive your project, the greater the risk of cyber-attack. Every collaborating party engaged across the full asset lifecycle has a duty of care to ensure data is securely managed and maintained.

In recent years there have been ever increasing and well-publicised security lapses, hacking and ransomware attacks causing severe reputational and economic damage, as well as jeopardising the safety and security of individuals, organisations and assets. And it’s only going to increase the more data is connected and collected through IoT, sensors and digital twins.

So how do you make your asset information and business more resilient against attack?

The cyber-resilient organisation
Tim Ogle, a cyber security expert at PA Consulting, explains how cyber security affects us all but needs to be commensurate with the needs of your business and criticality of the data you manage.

Who is responsible?
Paul Gray, Head of Key Accounts at project and asset information management specialists GroupBC, discusses the common issues surrounding asset data – what is it, how should it be protected and why, and what you should be asking of your Common Data Environment (CDE) solution and hosting partner.

We also look at where the responsibility for cyber security lies – with the client, the supply chain or the hosting providers, with Anthony Doncaster from hosting specialists Secura, explaining several hosting environment security options.

In this webinar we’ll discuss:

  • Why should project and asset data be protected?
  • Who is responsible for the security of asset information?
  • What are the implications of a cyber attack to your business?
  • What accreditations, governance and compliance should we inform by?
  • How do you protect your business and create a culture of cyber awareness?
