Pipeline Cybersecurity: State of the Industry and Proposed Roadmap
Time & Location
About the Event
2.6 million miles of pipelines deliver trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and hundreds of billions of tons of liquid petroleum products each year in the US. This infrastructure is largely operated by industrial control systems, typically referred to as SCADA systems, that are interconnected through an extensive combination of wired, wireless, public, and private networks. While there are voluntary standards and guidelines, there is currently no US regulation that encompasses cybersecurity for the pipeline sector. As such, the cybersecurity maturity of the pipeline sector is generally behind other energy sectors and there is wide variability in the cybersecurity readiness of pipeline operators.
This webinar will discuss the current state of pipeline cybersecurity, the challenges facing the sector, and the available standards and guidance. Afterwards, we present a recommended roadmap for pipeline operators based on findings from over 80 pipeline cybersecurity assessments performed over the last 7 years.
