Cybersecurity in Power - Thematic Research

Summary

Cybersecurity has been a major concern area for utilities for decades, due to roles played by them as operators of critical infrastructure systems and providers of essential services. Cyberattacks have the potential to damage a country’s power grid, with their major goal being to cause widespread infrastructure failures. So, concerns about cybersecurity continue to be at the top of utilities’ agendas, driven by the rising interconnected nature of infrastructure and systems, and the growing number of attacks targeting utilities.

Most organizations are putting their faith in artificial intelligence (AI) to improve threat intelligence, prediction, and protection. It is also providing cover for the continuing cybersecurity skills gap. Despite AI’s potential for good, future AI-driven attacks are likely. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted why cyber-naïve remote-workers need security awareness training to thwart hacker attacks. Attackers will target immature technologies, meaning 5G communications, smart cities, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all at risk.
