In recent years, we’ve seen an influx of cybersecurity threats compromising energy players, from Saudi Aramco in 2012 to the Colonial Pipeline last year, both of which have had the power to halt the flow of fuel to entire states and nations. In fact, a 2019 survey of global utilities by Siemens and the Ponemon Institute showed 56% of respondents reported that, in the last 12 months, their organization experienced at least one attack that resulted in the loss of private data or an outage.
Outside of physical attacks, when natural gases are extracted, transported, and refined, invisible gas leaks pose a quieter and consistently costly threat. In fact, the United States oil and natural gas industry loses approximately 1.4 to 2.3 percent of its natural gas from operations due to leaks, each year, according to the EPA.
