The rapid expansion of the attack surface due to IT/OT convergence has attracted cyber adversaries to the energy and utilities sector. OT environments are especially difficult to defend against cyberattacks due to the vulnerability and fragility of systems in place, and the common use of implicit trust models. These trusted systems can extend from upstream (exploration) to midstream (transportation and storage) to downstream (refining and distribution) OT infrastructures. The risks to utility networks range from regulated power generation to transmission to retail electricity distribution.
Join this panel to find out what are the strategies for securing OT Environments in the energy and utilities sector.
