Oil & Gas Seek More Cybersecurity Professionals

Rigzone reports that “Oil and gas companies are looking to hire more cybersecurity professionals as recent advances in oil and gas technology, which have created greater efficiency and reliability, also raise the industry’s risk from cyberattacks.”  

“As it becomes more lucrative and high-profile, the oil and gas industry has become more of a target for cyberattacks.”  

“’Oil and gas is holding the economy together in a lot of ways, and one of the few sectors not struggling,’ said Chad Pinson, managing director of global investigations for cybersecurity at Stroz Friedberg. Pinson said Stroz Friedberg sees more of its clients talking with the company about cybersecurity on ways they can bolster their cybersecurity preparedness.”
