Identifying and Reducing Social Engineering Attacks in the Construction Industry
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3 12:00 PM REGISTER HERE

Symantec data reveals that one out of every 39 construction industry email users gets targeted by phishing attacks. Overall, it is estimated that cybercrime damage cost businesses and individuals an astounding $1.5 trillion in 2018. Phishing, also known as "social engineering," is a cybercrime that can affect construction businesses of all sizes.  

Through email or malicious websites, the crime works by manipulating people by posing as a trustworthy organization. Attackers often take advantage of current events, such as the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, by baiting unsuspecting executives or managers with discounted or free offers of hard-to-find goods, or exploiting human nature and our desire to help others.

NUCA Diamond National Partner CNA's risk experts Paul Gouge and Terry Smith will help NUCA members identify clues in recognizing social engineering email attacks, the clues that giveaway phone and text scams, and will help you identify risk mitigation controls that you and your company can use to stop these costly crimes.
