ENERGY COMPANIES MUST PRIORITIZE PRIVILEGE MANAGEMENT TO COMBAT CYBER THREATS

As the energy sector increases digitization, outdated and weak security controls make it a vulnerable target for cyber attack.

Challenge

Weak privileged account management allows threat agents to infiltrate key systems and control them.

danger

For energy companies, cyber attacks aren’t just expensive and time-consuming—they can be deadly.

Solution

Proactive privileged account protection prevents threats from breaching critical infrastructure.

Cyber security in the utilities and energy sector cannot be an afterthought. It must be prioritized and ruthlessly tested and confirmed.

If a cyber attack allows a manufacturing component to overheat it could be an expensive and time consuming problem. If an attack impacts the power grid it could put lives at stake.

Privilege management reduces risk of a successful cyber attack.

Privileged Account Management (PAM) tools protect privileged credentials on new and custom legacy systems from unauthorized access and misuse. Security controls limit access to sensitive information and curtail an attacker’s ability to circulate unhindered throughout your IT environment.

With up to 80% of targeted attacks involving the use or misuse of privileged credentials, Privilege Account Management must be a foundational component of a utility and energy company’s cyber security strategy.
