Ensuring data security is paramount to the ongoing success of clean energy technology, and preventing cyber-attacks on energy infrastructure can eliminate industry breaches and shut-downs before they become national, regional, and local emergencies.

Now, more than half (53%) of P&U cybersecurity leaders are concerned about the ability to manage threats, as the sector presents an attractive target due to its societal impact. Across all sectors of the energy industry, companies today are faced with more extensive and sophisticated threats, including weak links in supply chains and increased vulnerability with the ongoing adoption of digital transformation initiatives.
