IT Network and Data Security

About our Organization:

PBDG’s (Professional Business Development Group) primary purpose is to improve the business conditions in the construction industry by increasing Preparation, Competitiveness and Relationships. PBDG members are women and minority construction contractors and professional services firms in the construction industry that share PBDG’s goal. PBDG was organized by its members with the recognition that, despite years of efforts, DMWESB  (Disadvantaged, Minority-Owned,Women-Owned, Emerging Small Business)  construction and professional services contractors in the construction industry remain greatly under represented which negatively impacts the productivity, efficiency, and vitality of Portland Contractors and the construction industry as a whole.

As a 501c6 trade association for minority-owned, women-owned and certified firms in construction. PBDG operates a technical assistance program through its Foundation.

The PBDG Foundation is a new 501c3 nonprofit organization that operates the Construction Business Training And Plan (TAP) Center. The Center provides wrap-around, construction specific, technical assistance services to meet participants where they are and build a long-term foundation for their business. Staff also work with other nonprofit organizations and business community partners to provide owners with access to valuable resources. The TAP Center is available to meet the needs of all COBID (Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity) certified contractors and professional service firms (consulting, design, general services, architecture and engineering). Businesses do not have to be members of PBDG to utilize this resource.

Project Description: PBDG has a new training center with new equipment that will be used by minority and women contractors for learning and as a plan center to work on their projects. In order for this space to be functional, we need an IT professional to set up and network the computers and printers and ensure data security. PBDG currently uses Google Email and Shared Drive for its communications and data center; IT security protocol for employees needs to be established.
