Expert Insights has today announced a new partnership with Align JV, a joint venture of three leading international construction companies: Bouygues Travaux Publics, Sir Robert McAlpine and VolkerFitzpatrick.  

Align JV have recently been announced as a leading construction partner in the development of HS2, the high speed rail line between London and the north of England. HS2 is the biggest transport infrastructure project currently ongoing in the United Kingdom. The new rail line will support a non-stop service from London to Birmingham and then fork out towards Manchester and Leeds.

The Align JV group is responsible for the design and construction of the C1 section of the HS2 project. This covers a 21.6km stretch in the north-west of London, the Colne Valley viaduct, and two 15.75km tunnels.

Expert Insights, a leading cybersecurity research firm, has partnered with Align JV to provide expert technical consultancy and support to protect their critical business systems from cybersecurity attacks. Cybersecurity threats against the construction industry continue to grow, with the industry suffering from web app attacks, social engineering, and the use of stolen credentials in particular. 

With this new partnership, Expert Insights will work together with Align JV to ensure they have access to critical cybersecurity support and consultancy as well as powerful cybersecurity solutions to support their work on the HS2 line.

Expert Insights CEO Craig MacAlpine said “Our cybersecurity consultants and technical support team are dedicated to protecting organizations around the world against targeted cybersecurity threats.
