Why Operational Technology (OT) Cyber Security for Oil & Gas Companies?
Traditional IT cyber security products have historically failed to ensure the safety and reliability of OT in the event of cyber disruptions. More specifically, IT products fail to offer the visibility and protection needed for physical assets and control systems in the Oil & Gas industry.
Sample Cyber Risks: Upstream
Legacy satellite/radio communications with SCADA systems
Open protocols used in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
Automated emergency shutdown systems are often on the same network as PLCs
Sample Cyber Risks: Midstream
Economic loss and environmental damage due to flow disruptions and false readings
Compromised flow meters and sensors at remote, unmanned compressor stations
Flat Operational Technology (OT) networks may allow attackers to traverse through the OT
Sample Cyber Risks: Downstream
Unauthorized remote engineering access to compressor or burner management systems
Unauthorized shutdown instructions to refinery control and safety systems
Manipulation to storage and transfer systems by rogue or malicious employees and vendors
