Cyber attacks targeting organizations in the energy sector are a growing global threat. Recent years have seen firms in sub-sectors like electricity generation and distribution, oil, and gas facing increasingly sophisticated attacks.
In order to protect against these myriad threats, organizations in the energy sector need to employ a multifaceted approach. This includes reviewing and leveraging an “outside-in” view, such as external attack surface monitoring to see which services and vulnerabilities are being exposed on the internet, such as the Microsoft Exchange zero days and default Telnet passwords.
LookingGlass’s Energy Sector Threat Brief will help energy sector organizations better understand the threats and threat actors facing their sector. This can help cybersecurity teams develop mitigations, improve defenses, and support threat hunting efforts.
