New Study Confirms Growing Cyber Risk in the Oil and Gas Sector

In a recent post, we discussed the growing cybersecurity threat faced by oil and gas companies as they increase their use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. The “high-tech oilfield” relies on these tools to transmit data from pipelines and equipment to central operations centers, where analytics tools are used to detect potential problems and safety concerns. This convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) dramatically increases the risk of a security breach.
