As a result of technology playing an increasingly significant role within energy sector operations across the board, it is an industry that has become a prime target for cyber attacks. These are being directed not only towards those directly in energy production and distribution but also towards industry partners that may not employ the same robust security protocols required to remain secure.
“What makes cyber threats especially dangerous within any industry, but particularly within energy, is that they can go undetected until real damage has taken place, from stolen data to power outages, destruction of physical assets and major financial loss,” said Chad Schamberger, VP of Engineering Services at VirtualArmour.
Nick Dinsmoor, VP Strategy at VirtualArmour added, “Through working with some of the largest organizations in the field, VirtualArmour has developed significant industry expertise in this area and is able to design, implement and manage tailored and robust solutions which deliver extremely high levels of protection. We’re pleased to be further widening our footprint in the energy sector and believe it will be one we see increasing business from in both the short and long term.”
