Today, the energy, oil & gas, and utilities industries are squarely in the crosshairs of hacktivists and cyber-criminals who attempt to access and destroy valuable data and the operation of critical infrastructure. Such an attack could potentially disrupt the global energy markets by affecting production, competition, and even the prices at the pump.
It's a significant challenge. In fact, a recent study predicted that cyber attacks against oil and gas companies will cost $1.87 billion by 2018.* As a result, energy, oil & gas, and utilities leaders must do all they can to maximize the cyber security of their systems – as well as those of third-party vendors – to protect their most critical business assets.
Better security for energy, oil & gas, and utilities – or any organization in any industry – is just a click away.
