It’s one thing to have a plan; it’s quite another to use it. As the experts at exida discovered during a Cybersecurity Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) at an Oil & Gas company, a plan was well laid out and seemed to give the company excellent protection for their electronic systems. The execution of the plan, however, left a lot to be desired.
If it surprises you that a large and seemingly sophisticated industry like the Oil & Gas sector has outdated systems, think again. It’s very common to find old versions of software with outdated virus protection floating around on different machines throughout a facility. Training is also something that often gets missed, particularly with employee turnover or budget cutting. Without the necessary system and human “upgrades”, your facility is at risk for a costly and potentially dangerous cybersecurity attack.
