Energy Sector a Prime Target for Cyberattacks

Any government that wants to set priorities for cybersecurity should probably put its energy infrastructure close to the top.If your electricity or fuel supplies are down, it’s tough to provide just about anything else. Heat, refrigeration, water, factories, financial services, power equipment, groceries, retail, and entertainment — they all depend on the power grid.So it is no surprise that the energy sector ranks close to the top of targets for cyber attackers. If you really want to cripple anything, from an enterprise to a nation state, take down its power infrastructure.
