Arctic Wolf: Cybersecurity for the Oil & Gas Industry: Identify the Threats, Prevent Attacks
Although there is likely increased scrutiny around cybersecurity in the Oil and Gas industry due to the recent ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline, cyber attacks are not new to your space.
While many companies have continued to move towards digitalization over the years across their operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) in order to improve productivity, remain efficient and reduce costs, attackers are doubling down on opportunities to infiltrate and wreak havoc.
Add to that the pressure of what was once voluntary compliance to new mandated regulations for your industry, followed by the need to update and improve security posture, Oil and Gas companies are realizing that their lean IT team’s lack holistic monitoring across the entire attack surface.
Cyber-attacks are capable of bringing a company’s operations to a complete standstill, thus resulting in enormous loss of money, reputation, and even lives and environmental disasters in some cases.
