Cyber-related attacks and data breaches continue to be among the most damaging and expensive risks facing organizations. However, many contractors still operate under the “If it’s not broke, don't fix it” approach to their information systems. Attendees will be educated on cyber attacks from a hacker's perspective as well as other current threats and trends, and learn strategies to take a proactive approach to security and overall risk management. 

• Based on breaches from real data, what are some of the high level trends in cyber security and which of these are a concern for the construction industry 
• Using breach scenarios, profile at a high level how breaches actually occur from the initial attack to data exfiltration (sensitive data leaving your company) • Highlight the three latest trends, defenses, and/or vulnerabilities in cyber security (ransomware, incident response, spectre and meltdown, etc.) and how they apply to the construction industry 
• Define the Internet of Things (IoT) and what companies are doing to protect these devices as the world becomes more connected

• Conclude with a “Story from the Field”: Performing social engineering testing during a career in cyber security
