World : Cyber security in the energy sector: Rolling out a strategy in the face of disruption - Part 3

This is the final article in a three part series looking at cyber security in the energy sector. Here, Information Age looks at how energy companies can best roll out a cyber security strategy, and the importance of doing so in the face of competitive disruption; with insights from Rapid7, Drax and Darktrace Industrial

In the final article of Information Age’s three part series on cyber security in the energy sector, we look at how energy companies can best roll out a cyber security strategy, and the importance of doing so in the retention of customers.

This series has taken an extensive look – with the help of Scott King, Senior Director, Security Advisory Services for Rapid7, Andrew Tsonchev, Director of Technology for Darktrace Industrial and Martin Sloan, Group Head of Security at Drax – at how the energy sector should combat the growing threats posed by cyber attacks and the importance of doing so.

In the first of this three part series on cyber security in the energy sector, we looked at the dangers posed by an increasing number of attacks on critical infrastructure in recent years. The repercussions are significant, and potentially catastrophic to both business and society.

Part 1 established that as the energy sector becomes more digitised, the need to evolve cyber security practice becomes more of a priority. The experts maintained that cyber security has improved, although – as with any industry – there is room for improvement. It also became clear that new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, could be introduced to help improve cyber security in the energy sector.
