Many energy companies keep their networks unconnected because they believe this makes them cyber secure. This misguided strategy will fall victim to more successful attacks, from inside and outside. Connectivity gives you visibility which provides insight.
Many companies do not know what assets and devices exist on their OT networks.
This limits their understanding of where their infrastructure is most vulnerable.
Most energy companies have focused on building up their IT cyber capabilities. But these cannot be simply deployed into the OT environment because of differences in the systems, data, devices, and critical dependencies.
Because of this inattention to OT, cybersecurity experts who can secure complex, aging, and interdependent infra-structure are hard to find.
OT systems are older than IT systems.
OT equipment, which can last decades, is often developed with proprietary systems that have exposures and vulnerabilities difficult to protect.
Even if a company detects a potential intrusion into its OT cybersecurity environment, it may lack the plans or capabilities to respond effectively.
Cyber solutions must apply across multiple vendors to provide a single, seamless cyber program.
If you say “yes” to one or more of the questions above, you are not alone. For energy companies, the probability of a cyber attack is nearly 100%.
Overcoming the fear of connectivity is essential because the benefits of digitalization are too great. Organizations must focus on agility and resiliency so they can respond when – not if – they are attacked.
