Recent attacks, including SolarWinds and the intrusion and tampering at Oldsmar Florida water facility, further punctuate the trend of cyber strikes targeting U.S. critical infrastructure with increased frequency and impact. Moreover, the landscape of adversaries now includes nation states, in addition to sponsored groups, organized crime, terrorists, and hacktivists.
At the same time, the energy industry is managing a multitude of issues, including the push for decarbonization, digitalization, and distributed/decentralized business models. All the while, the COVID-19 pandemic, along with its technology and cultural impacts remains. The convergence of these forces presents an opening for adversaries to exploit vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, potentially impacting safety, stability, and/or resiliency of public power utilities.
