Modern energy and utility organizations operate in a dynamic environment where they must constantly adjust to evolving regulatory requirements, disruptive technologies, rising customer expectations, and continuous pressure to cut costs.
The cyber threat landscape, too, is continually evolving. “Lone wolf” hackers are being eclipsed by well-funded, highly organized nation-state cyber criminals who may seek to compromise the nation’s critical infrastructure – including its power grids and water and gas supplies – as part of a coordinated terrorist attack. New smart grids and distribution systems present a new set of vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit, and older SCADA systems can no longer rely on “security through obscurity” or air-gapping.
In addition to operational systems, customer and employee data is also at risk. IoT security is of particular concern as more customers demand smart thermostats and other IoT devices to manage their utility consumption.
