The security challenge for connected equipment for utilities
Businesses, governments and homes all rely on the “always on” service of their electricity networks, traffic systems, gas pipes, water facilities and other critical utility infrastructure. Although the smooth operations of various connected equipment, such as smart meters, water sensors, traffic lights and automated management systems, have become mission critical to our daily lives, the rapid growth in the sheer number of devices has greatly increased the utilities’ exposure to security threats and the risk of cyberattacks. But with this rapidly becoming a global threat, which is constantly being upgraded in terms of complexity and scale, it may not be as easy to quickly get back to business as usual.
Strategic imperative for the entire energy and utilities industry
The recent proliferation in the number of vulnerabilities and offensive activities related to connected equipment for utilities has pushed both customers and regulatory agencies to rapidly increase their demands for improved security. At the same time, it has significantly increased security-related business, reputation and financial risks for utilities. As a result, the relevant manufacturers, vendors and service providers need to address this strategic imperative by quickly scaling up their product security capabilities across all business units and product lines.
