The energy sector offers malicious actors the best opportunity of causing physical damage. With the economic and social importance of energy provision, the attractiveness of this target for nation-states, terrorists, and hacktivists is clear. In the last 12 months, 26% of energy companies fell victim to a successful cyber-attack, and with industrial control systems increasingly being linked to the Internet, and IoT devices spreading in the workplace, this percentage could rise.
The critical role that the energy sector plays in the functioning of a modern economy, with its increasing interconnection and digitisation, with the emergence of smart grids and smart devices, make the energy sector a highly attractive target for cyber-attacks aimed at disrupting operations. In a worst-case scenario these attacks can result in infrastructure shut down, triggering economic and financial disruptions or even loss of life and massive environmental damage.
Energy companies and grid organizations need to be aware of the various cyber threats that face them and accept that their strategic role in society places them in the firing line of some particularly skilled and motivated attackers, including state actors.
Due to the speed of these changes, traditional cyber security measures have been found wanting, as evidenced by the growing level of cyber breaches reported in this sector. Forward-thinking organisations must build on the effective parts of their cyber security programmes with practical solutions in order to stay one step ahead.
Wizard Cyber provides an ideal cyber security partner for any energy company, oil & gas firm or IoT provider confronted by the specific challenges peculiar to the energy sector. The energy and utilities industry are currently the second biggest target for cyber attacks.
