REDUCE EXPOSURE TO IDENTITY-BASED CYBER-ATTACKS IN ENERGY AND UTILITIES INFRASTRUCTURES
While media coverage of cyber-attacks mostly focuses on data breaches at major brands such as Target, Sony, or financial institutions, the nation's critical infrastructure is equally if not more at risk from advanced persistent threats (APTs). Energy providers that operate electric grids, gas pipelines, and nuclear power plants are prime targets for APTs because a successful attack could have wide-reaching impacts on the economy and civic stability. Trusted by top energy firms and utilities, Centrify Zero Trust Privilege solutions help tackle the #1 cause of today’s breaches — privileged access abuse.
Protecting the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure While Staying Compliant
According to a SANS Institute research study, 69 percent of energy providers and utilities consider the threat to industrial control systems (ICS) to be high or severe. Energy and utility firms face tremendous pressure when it comes to securing privileged access to their IT infrastructure, as cyber-attacks are not just costly, but more importantly would impact the nation’s economy or can even cost lives.
In turn, energy and utility firms must abide by stringent regulatory mandates, complicating their day-to-day operations even further and putting an additional burden on an already overwhelmed IT staff.
To add to the challenges, the global shortage of trained security professionals hits energy and utility firms especially hard, as they often can’t compete with the salaries paid in other industries.
