Building and Construction

// What are the

Key risks in the building and construction industry?

Construction projects involve multiple stakeholders and are often undertaken on challenging sites. Construction businesses must often manage changes to scope or orders, poorly written contracts and specifications and complex project management issues. They may need to deal with labour and materials shortages, or theft of tools and materials.

Subcontractors and suppliers can provide extra stress for construction firms, as can the rising number of extreme weather events. What’s more, cybercrime is an emerging threat to construction businesses, which often use insecure connections from mobile workplaces, and share files and data with stakeholders outside the business.
