The energy industry is a critical infrastructure that is core to our business operations, safety, comfort and general well-being. This has become most evident with recent disasters such as Super Storm Sandy as well as the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Unquestionably there is the need to ensure the supply of energy in a safe and highly reliable manner particularly when faced with both physical constraints such as downed wires and damaged infrastructure as well as personnel requirements under confinement and the order to work at home. These situations demonstrate not only our dependence on operational systems that are flexible, adaptable and resilient, but also the cyber assurance that is necessary from both from a user perspective and an asset sensor and control perspective.
