Oil and Gas Cyber-Threat Landscape

Sponsor Stage

Threat actors of varying intent and capability, such as cyber-espionage groups (nation-state actors), organized criminal groups and hacktivist groups, have launched campaigns affecting the oil and gas (O&G) industry. There is a realistic possibility that O&G companies will face opportunistic cyber-threat actors who are likely to engage in corporate espionage attacks as well as cyber-physical attacks against O&G assets. This is especially prominent in highly competitive markets where cyber-threats and intellectual property theft are a significant part of the business culture. This threat landscape brief identifies the vulnerabilities within the O&G industry, threat actors targeting O&G companies, and steps to take to ensure O&G companies are protected against potential cyber-attacks.
