Event description
Meet I-Construct’s mentors and industry experts in our regular expert sessions designed specifically to help your business develop and grow.

About this event

I-Construct is a supply chain development and innovation support project designed to help UK-based companies* access opportunities in the construction market and develop new products and services within their businesses.

Benefit from our experts' passion and experience as thought leaders within the construction sector and supply chain, as they share their learning and offer guidance and essential market insight into key areas of business.

Plus all of our expert sessions include a networking session - an opportunity for everyone to meet informally and develop together.

On 24th June, Janice Pittis will discuss how you can reduce the risk of a cyber attack on your systems.

As the construction industry moves forward, rapidly embracing new technology, the risks are becoming more pervasive. It’s no longer just a case of making sure offices and building sites are secure from thieves.

Around 65,000 cyber-attacks are attempted on UK SMEs daily, with about 4,500 of them carried out successfully. This means that every 19 seconds, one SME in the UK is suffering from a cyber breach/attack. What measures do you have in place to protect your company from being one of them? How do you protect the devices we all use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers) and the services we access from theft? What steps do you take to prevent unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal and business information stored on these devices, and online?

Join us to look at the action you should consider taking to ensure your business is cyber secure.
