Survey on Cybersecurity Implications of Construction 4.0

The construction industry is not only creating increasingly valuable digital assets (in addition to physical ones), but also the buildings and built infrastructures are increasingly monitored and controlled using digital technology. Both make Construction 4.0 a vulnerable target of cyber-attacks. While the damage to digital assets, such as designs and cost calculations, may result in economic damage, attacks on digitally-controlled physical assets may damage the well-being of occupants.

The purpose of the survey is to learn how the construction industry, its clients and also the researchers and developers understand cyber-security threats so as to provide a baseline for further research into the topic; to get a better understanding of the cybersecurity implications due to the automation and digital transformation taking place in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Operations (AECO) industry.
