Oil and Gas Sector
Rise in sophisticated attacks
Terra bytes of leaked data
Extreme vulnerabilities exposed in recent cyberattacks
Attacks on downstream and mid-stream companies rises by 173 percent in just 7 months
O&G sector is among the top-2 most attacked sectors globally
Industrial IoT devices and connected systems have degraded the cybersecurity of SCADA systems that are managing exploration and drilling sites, storage units and infrastructure used to manage operations. Connected sensors and controller devices have also eliminated air gaps from SCADA systems thereby exposing them to cyberattacks.
Every link in the oil and gas exploration and supply chain is vulnerable. Use of SCADA systems and IoT expands the threat surface across oil wells, refining plants, pipelines, storage units and retail outlets.
