Cyberattacks on energy infrastructure have become a headline affair in recent years, and the costs of not addressing the threats they pose can be catastrophic. What are the responses, and how does the convergence of IT and OT help close the security gaps? Woodside has invested in Sapien Cyber, a Western Australian company specializing in the protection and security of critical infrastructure. The TRITON/TRISIS/HatMan malware incident proved that the worlds of process safety and industrial control systems should be looked at holistically, not just from the standpoint of potential cyberthreats. Most businesses understand that data is essential to improving operational performance and that data technologies provide opportunities for more-accurate risk assessment and control of safety-critical systems.
