ID06 – Compulsory ID and attendance reporting on the building site. With the introduction of ID06, the Swedish building sector has made a big step forward in the fight against economic crime. Pre-registration, compulsory proof of identity and attendance reporting make it more difficult for unauthorised persons to be present on the building site.

The challenge

The construction sector in Sweden has been challenged by undeclared work and tax evasion, which leads to increased insecurity and personal safety risks at workplaces as well as government tax losses. As of January 2016, the law requires construction sites in Sweden to register contractors electronically. The aim is to reduce the incidence of undeclared labor and promote fair competition throughout the industry.

ID06 is a company that provides a system that meets the requirements of the Swedish Contractor Registration Act and provides industry-specific equipment. More than 600,000 employees in more than 60,000 companies already carry a personal ID06 card in Sweden.

Sophisticated cyber threats that are driven by the grey market pose serious challenges to the building sector. Organized crime exploits the latest cyber technology and tries to benefit from ID06 by tricking extra persons in the system in order to gain access to building sites. In addition, criminals try to take advantage of the personal data collected by the system.

Our solution

Nixu provides ID06 with its Cyber Defense Center (CDC) service, which gives ID06 access to a scalable defense system that combines the latest cybersecurity technology with the skills of top professionals in the field. Nixu CDC provides real time supervision of digital environments, intrusion investigation as well as an up-to-date snapshot of cyber threats. In addition, Nixu CDC conducts attack testing, and it always has access to real time information about current cyber threats and the latest attack techniques, which it can respond to using state-of-the-art technology.

Customer benefit

ID06 collects and processes a significant amount of personal data, which undoubtedly involves particular security risks. Therefore, in such an environment, it is extremely important to ensure high-quality cybersecurity. Nixu CDC provides ID06 with the capability to spot upcoming sophisticated attacks as well mitigate them with a minimal amount of damage and availability loss, and keeps the ID06 system operational and secure 24/7. With the introduction of a secure ID06 system, the building sector has made a big step forward in the fight against economic crime.

We are happy to partner with Nixu in the fight against economic crime in the Swedish building sector.
