Security within the construction sector is becoming increasingly important. Not just in terms of the physical controls and guarding, but also in respect of how we manage risks arising from unauthorised access to, and manipulation or sharing of, data, information and systems.

The consequences of poor security should not be underestimated and could affect project financial margins, the construction programme, business reputation, the built asset itself and, worst of all, the lives of personnel.

This guidance has been produced in order to help chartered institute of building members and their supply chains understand the principles of good security planning and to design appropriate and proportionate mitigation measures for construction projects.

Understanding the security risk profile and conducting effective planning for appropriate and holistic project security is therefore essential and will help in enabling a safe and productive construction environment.
