The risk of a work stoppage causing chaos for an active project is just one reason construction firms are a prime target for threat actors. The industry saw ​ransomware attacks increase 48% from 2022 to 2023.

[ICON] Step #1

A deceptive phishing email

A large construction firm placed an order with one of their go-to suppliers ahead of a new project. The firm received an email from the billing representative informing them that the supplier’s bank information had changed. New instructions for payment were attached.

The construction company sent the payment (approximately $2,000,000). Two days later, their supplier called to inquire about the payment status, and it was quickly discovered that the firm had been defrauded by threat actors who had impersonated the billing representative.

Recovery begins

Corvus worked with the construction firm to respond to the fraudulent transfer of funds, connecting them with several vendors to investigate the wire transfer and their IT system. Since the construction company quickly notified Corvus of the fraudulent charge, we were able to help claw back a majority of the stolen funds.
