Digitalization brings unprecedented opportunities to optimize systems and operations across the energy industry. But it also brings unprecedented risks to grid security. As networks become smarter and more connected, the amount of potential access points for and damage from unwanted cyber incidents is growing massively. With some estimates suggesting the cost of cybercrime will reach USD 2 trillion by 2019, it has never been more critical to be security ready.
But what does it mean to be security ready? It means ensuring that your systems and people are prepared for, protected against and able to respond to cyber threats – whether malicious or accidental.
