Oil, gas & energy sector will remain a top target for cyber criminals.
While oil, gas & energy companies are adapting new technologies, they also need security measures in place. Cyber attacks are becoming sophisticated by the day, and it takes more than simple malware-protection to prevent data leaks.
As cyber threats evolve at a rapid pace, it is becoming difficult to protect the electric grid from all impending threats. A large-scale attack could result in massive costs, triggering electric grid power outages and disruptions in healthcare delivery.
According to the response of The Industrial Control Systems Emergency Response Team to 256 attack incidents against critical infrastructure, 59 percent of incidents were associated with the energy sector.
As for the oil and gas companies, they do not have any direct cybersecurity regulations to comply with. This is one of the reasons why they are an attraction for high-profile attacks targeting sensitive intellectual property, according to a report.

Federal level cyber regulations
The oil, gas, and energy sector will be a top target for cyber criminals in the coming years as breaches inside this sector can be used to disrupt communications and critical infrastructure of a country.
Though there is no regulatory body overseeing the energy sector exclusively, companies need to comply with the regulatory standards set by the Department of Homeland security and other such federal agencies to prevent charges, and investigations in case there is a breach. Massive’s platforms ensure that your costs remain low and impending threats are stopped or mitigated before they reach your company’s bottom line.
Attack incidents against oil, gas, and energy companies:
- Electric grid DDoS attacks
- Oil company intellectual property spying
- Leaked information
- Zero day attacks
- Stolen sensitive information
- Planned attacks on critical systems
The sector may not be able to keep up with these threats even if it complies with the federal security policies, as the cyber threat landscape is evolving and threats are becoming more sophisticated.
