Construction 4.0 – a New Cybersecurity Paradigm

Adrian Victor VEVERA, Carmen Elena CÎRNU, Alexandru GEORGESCU,,


The digitalization of economic, political and social life has not been homogeneous. Certain domains have digitalized faster than others. This has led to early exposure to the worsening cybersecurity environment and an early awakening of awareness regarding the need for research and investment into cybersecurity as an ongoing concern. The corollary is that there are fields which feature a delayed onset of digitalization, and they are becoming more exposed to a complex and dynamic security environment without having absorbed important lessons or introduced measures to increase resilience. One such field is the AECO industry (architecture, engineering, construction and operation), which is a crucial economic domain, and which is rapidly digitalizing. The article explains the Construction 4.0 concept and highlights the need for research and investment into the cybersecurity gaps stemming from the specific characteristics of the field.
