Clean energy vs cyber crime
Is the fear of a major cyber-attack holding energy companies back from connecting to more smart technologies? And what does this mean for the growing risk of climate emergency?
Mathias Steck, DNV GL’s Executive Vice President and Regional Manager for the Digital Hub Asia, analyses the link between climate emergency and cyber security for energy companies, and what business and society needs to do to future-proof against the impact of both.
In the first episode of this new series, Face the Facts, Mathias shares his opinion and insight on the week’s most significant global news stories. The UN is calling on governments to stop building new coal plants by the end of 2020. And 75% of energy companies are avoiding greater connectivity to smart technologies – because of fears around cyber security.
Now that climate change has officially been upgraded to climate emergency, it’s time to face the facts.
