Todd Takes

  1. Playing off of last week’s episode with Cory Borchardt, always be curious. If you look to other industries that have experienced similar trend lines and trajectories as construction, you will be able to find ways to improve with lessons learned without having to experience the same degree of pain. 
  2. When it comes to data strategy, take time to truly think through how you are using and leveraging data to work smarter and more efficiently. All data is not created equal. Some is more valuable to know and protect. 
  3. Finally, and sadly, ransomware isn’t a matter of if but when nowadays. What is your recovery and resiliency strategy for when an attack takes place? Make sure you know the answer.
