Securing Oil and Gas data

Just as the value of Oil and Gas is volatile, so too is the cybersecurity space surrounding modern energy companies. With huge amounts of data and intellectual property being utilised and distributed throughout organisational processes, this rapid growth is driving the industry as a key target for attackers.

Growing threat against ‘black gold’

The Oil and Gas industry is the second-most prone to cyber attacks according to Deloitte, with a number of factors feeding into the swell of these attacks. Initially, a key cause was the digitisation of the industry and business processes – exposing hoards of sensitive Intellectual Property (IP) consisting of financial, industry and company data.

Additionally, we're now looking at legacy systems  serving as a barrier to the move to digital, but most importantly, presenting major cybersecurity holes – much to the delight of cyber attackers.

Defend against the insider

More devices, more employees: increased risk

The number and variation of endpoints is growing, provided alongside the ability to work remotely to support flexible and efficient working conditions.

Each of these elements impact the associated risk and increase the appeal of the industry, to both internal and external attackers.
