Cyber criminals are increasing targeting oil and natural gas companies to steal intellectual property, sabotage business, and in some cases, disrupt production. The recent cyber-attack on the US major oil and gas pipeline could become one of the most expensive attacks to an economy.
Oil and gas industries, and the array of related companies that rely on them need to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats and share knowledge and insights to help defend against attack. Those companies that don’t have the board support or internal resources to develop adequate cybersecurity programs must reach out for assistance to help assess and mitigate their risks through the construction of policies and processes.
While many energy companies have solid front-line defenses against “routine” cyber risks, cybersecurity programs may not be advanced enough to address more modern, sophisticated attacks. This brief reviews the key cyber threat agents of concern to oil and gas.
