Cybersecurity in Oil and Gas – Thematic Research

The oil and gas industry increasingly relies on digital technologies to transform itself in the 21st century. But this digital transformation also opens the door for cyberattacks. As increasing volumes of data are being stored on networked servers, there is a higher probability of this data getting targeted by hackers. Each node in a company’s network, whether a computer terminal, a cell phone, sensors, or a networked camera, can become an entry point for hackers. Due to the increasingly connected nature of the oil and gas value chain, cyberattacks on one company could cripple operations across several entities. The oil and gas industry needs a clear strategy to tackle cyberattacks and therefore, cybersecurity has become a critical theme.
