About this talk

Energy and natural resource organizations worldwide are key targets for cyber criminals as seen with the 2021 Colonial Pipeline attack which massively undermined the solidity of the United States’ critical infrastructure, and the more recent 2022 cyber attack on the European oil refining hubs of Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA), which disrupted the loading and unloading of refined product cargoes amid a continental energy crisis. The Colonial Pipeline attack in particular drove top down regulatory change across the United States such as Executive Order 14028 and TSA Security Directives 2021-01 and 2021-02, mandating higher bars for security. As attacks across this sector are widespread, global regulations may follow suit. The sophistication of cyber attacks targeting IT and OT environments across the energy and natural resources sector necessitates phishing-resistant digital access for all users including employees, contract service workers, secondees, and others across downstream, midstream and upstream workflows. In addition, cyber insurance providers of late are also mandating MFA and some, more stringent controls. So how do you get to the gold standard of phishing-resistant MFA, and ultimately, eliminate passwords altogether to keep your business secure? Join us to learn best practices to modernize cybersecurity across your critical IT and OT environments with Yubico solutions, to stop modern cyber threats and drive cyber insurance hygiene.
