Counter-intrusion strategies for I.T. networks in the building industry

Abstract: During the development of a building project all decisions are reliant on information, its transfer and interpretation. As IT networks are crucial to the efficient management of the building process, the security of these links is critical to the assurance of quality and success in a project. This paper considers counter-intrusion strategies for maximising security during the design, development and implementation stages of a building project. Through an analysis of documented intrusion strategies this paper considers IT concerns for data-theft in an industry wherein the potential for criminal intrusion is increasing every year.
