Cyber Risk: Take it seriously—Your firm is at risk.
Architecture firms of all sizes are seeing an increase in cyber-attacks both in terms of frequency and intensity. From hackers taking control of your servers, to criminals tricking you into paying false invoices, to liability arising from lost data – your firm is at risk.
Architects can now develop a robust risk management procedure for their firm by turning to their insurance professionals. The AIA Trust, through their partnership with Victor O. Schinnerer & Company, has developed a Cyber Risk Kit to help you understand the cyber exposures that architects face each day, help you assess your firm’s risk, and provide you with comprehensive cyber solutions.
Some questions to consider:
- What information do you collect?
- How do you store the information?
- Who has access to the information?
- How do you protect your data?
- What steps do you take to secure your computers, network, email, etc.?
