White paper details cyber threat protection for the energy industry

Last summer, one of the world’s largest oil and natural gas producers discovered that a virus had infiltrated 30,000 of its computer workstations. The company had no choice but to isolate all of its computer systems from outside access.

While the infiltration had no impact on the company’s production operations,  employees were cut off from e-mail and corporate servers for several days. Worse, the virus erased significant data, documents, and e-mail files on roughly 75% of corporate computers.

Incidents like these are becoming more common, and more sophisticated, as the risk of cyber threats, and the knowledge of those who perpetrate them, continues to grow.

PwC has a white paper detailing these threats and ways to protect against them. Embedding cyber security into the energy ecosystem looks at the state of information security around the globe. Detailed graphs and elaborate analysis offer information that is both thorough and easy to understand. Paper covers a variety of threats, and ways to combat them. It includes information on regulatory and technological advancements, and details steps to stay prepared against attacks.

Embedding cyber security into the energy ecosystem is available now.
