The energy industry constitutes a landscape of risks – an area densely populated with threats and susceptible to hacker attacks, insider activity, spying and sabotage.
The assets of oil and gas companies are often seized by perpetrators. The working process is deliberately compromised, which impinges on equipment’s functioning and also puts employees in jeopardy.
About one-third of all incidents in the world are OT targeted (Operational Technology). OT protection is underappreciated although the damage to running Operational Technology is even more serious than the exposure of confidential data.
Organizations in the energy industry should confront threats to:
- software controlling physical devices
- critical infrastructure
- compliance management
- secret information safety
