COVID-19 has forced most companies to adjust their remote work policies and reexamine their readiness against potential cybersecurity threats and breaches. Host Nick Espinosa explores a wide spectrum of topics, including threats facing contractors as they shift part or all of their staffs to remote working status, as well as trusted cybersecurity services available for businesses.

More than 40 percent of construction companies do not have a dedicated information technology (IT) department, according to J.B. Knowledge's recently published Construction Technology Report. For small and medium sized specialty contractors, like most SMACNA members, that percentage is significantly higher. SMACNA's new "Guideline to Information Technology" addresses this gap by providing members with guidance on the proper combination of standardized hardware, software, and connectivity. This easy-to-read, 39-page document also includes two critical appendices: A Sample Disaster Recovery Plan and a Sample Information Technology Policy and Procedures Manual. So, if you're looking for a quick resource guide to navigating IT decision making and management, check out SMACNA's "Guideline to Information Technology".
This document is free to members in the SMACNA Store.
