Cybersecurity Alert:

Pro-Russia Hackers Target Canada's Gas Infrastructure

Recent cyber attack on Canada's gas infrastructure by pro-Russia hackers raises concerns about cybersecurity in the energy sector

Oil and gas infrastructure are frequent targets for cybercriminals and state-sponsored actors due to their value and vulnerability

Renewable energy infrastructure, although currently a smaller target, may become more attractive as Canada increases its renewable power generation

The nascence of Canada's renewable energy infrastructure provides an opportunity to prioritize cybersecurity from the outset

Vigorous regulatory enforcement and the adoption of cybersecurity frameworks like Bill C-26 are necessary to protect critical cyber systems

Cybersecurity insurance can incentivize organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity measures, and collaboration between industry and government is vital for improving cyber resilience in the energy sector
