A new report released by consultants Linesight suggests that construction activity in Canada will contract by just under 1% in 2023, due to a series of factors, including reduced demand for housing, rising costs and shortages of skilled workers.

 In early 2020, a major Canadian construction firm, announced it had been hit by a ransomware attack. Although the company provided reassurance that they were able to continue with business as usual, there’s no doubt that sensitive information had been compromised.
But they are not alone. In fact, they are in good company. More than 85 per cent of Canadian companies were hit by cyberattacks over a 12-month period in 2021, and companies hit by these attacks spent $600 million to recover.
With the cost and frequency of cyberattacks rising, construction companies and contractors must adopt technological solutions with the right supports in place.
Whether adopting a complete software solution or even using a drone to survey a single site, business owners and leaders will need to learn all they can about cybersecurity, including why the construction industry is being targeted, what the risks are, and how to protect against them.
