A few examples include:
- Governments and private owners are progressively moving their data to the cloud.
- More comprehensive structured data sets of sensitive buildings and infrastructure assets are being created— thanks to building information modelling (BIM).

However, supply chains are typically comprised of many smaller organisations— many of which don’t consider themselves targets to cyberterrorists.
Specialist subcontractors often produce highly detailed data sets— which, combined with complementary data from other linked trades, could be highly damaging if a cyberthief seized this valuable information.
