UK Government mandated the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in 2011 in the Government Construction Strategy.
The British Standards Institute has published PAS 1192 as the standard for how to implement BIM. Section 5 of the standard provides guidance on how to keep BIM models and the information on the buildings they represent safe from cyber threats, during the design, construction and operational phases.
PAS 1192-5 specifies requirements for security-minded management of BIM and digital built environments. It outlines the cyber-security vulnerabilities to hostile attack when using BIM and provides an assessment process to determine the levels of cyber-security for BIM collaboration which should be applied during all phases of the site and building lifecycle.
It is of relevance to any organisation working with building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management.
Ascentor has experience in developing a strategy for implementing the security aspects of BIM.
We understand the information security concerns around integrating sensitive information in models that have to be shared digitally with multiple users and have developed a pragmatic approach to assessing and managing the risks of BIM in Common Data Environments and down the supply chain companies.
We can help organisations either as intelligent customers seeking to ensure that their information is secure during such projects or as intelligent suppliers demonstrating that they can manage customer information in a challenging scenario.
For help with BIM or any element of Information Assurance for your organisation or department, system or project, please get in touch.
