According to Construction Dive, the construction industry is slower to adopt new technologies, and as a result, is the #1 industry targeted for cyberattacks. Contractors may think cyber risks only happen to large companies, or to those businesses that are not adhering to strong security protocols. However, that’s not the case—and a lot is at risk.

Think about how your business would function if you experience downtime due to a cyberattack. Your financial data and customer information are at the core of everything you do, and all are at risk if not properly protected.

Industry experts have stated that construction companies are most vulnerable to loss of funds through email communications, malware, ransomware and, most recently siegeware, which specifically targets smart building technology. Construction firms need to have a plan in place before they become the next target.

At Deltek, we’re committed to being a trusted partner by offering a solution to better protect your business, help you adhere to security protocols, and avoid downtime should you be attacked.

You can ensure your business never misses a beat with reliable cloud hosting that guarantees your financial data is accessible, backed up, tested and secure. With Deltek + ComputerEase in the Cloud, contractors can leverage the expertise of our expert cloud technicians and remove the IT burden of hosting your accounting solution.
