The Biggest Cybersecurity Threat: The Energy Sector
Cybersecurity has been at the forefront of the news for several years. Coverage of the space usually focuses on a breach at a consumer-facing company, resulting in people’s credit cards, bank and personal records being stolen. As bad as these kinds of incidents are, however, we have thus far avoided cybersecurity threats that pose far larger and scarier problems. It’s cyber attacks on the energy space, not the consumer credit space, that could cripple the United States — or any country — as well as bring about a collapse of order and society that most of us associate with apocalyptical scenarios.
