Cyber Resilience and Compliance
Regulatory compliance is a constant and costly challenge for the Oil and Gas industry. The 80% of the domestic oil and gas companies tend to be small and often have very few employees multitasking many times. The nature of the market impacts the bottom-line mainly because of weather, geopolitics, and global demand.
According to Bloomberg (2/20/2020), a ransomware attack caused a US natural gas compressor facility to shut down for two days and it all started with a phishing email.
The primary reasons for increased risk are:
- Internet of Things (IoT) devices
- Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
- Poor integration between modern data solutions and existing systems
- Lack of awareness
- Lots of third-party vendors
- A rapid expansion of the regulatory landscape
With emerging technologies spreading to the energy industry, the concerns about data privacy regulations are increasing more.
