The Threat is Real: Cyberattacks Against Architectural Firms

Many architectural firms are tempted into believing they’re safe from cyberattacks because they don’t consider their data to be “sensitive” enough to attract criminals. A new article published by the AIA Trust is filled with real case studies and highlights how very attractive architectural firms are to cybercriminals, the most successful attack vectors currently in use, and the potential regulatory and reputational impact in the event of a data privacy violation.

In this article, the authors combine extensive technical and legal experience to recommend actionable steps firms can take in order to develop a defensible security strategy, including governance, policies, infrastructure, people, and relationships. Having responded to thousands of cyber incidents, the authors also examine key practices such as the transfer of risk via cyber insurance, multi-factor authentication, and third-party risk and how they can benefit architectural firms.
