Power and utility systems are increasingly targeted by cybercriminals due to their strategic activities and access to citizens' sensitive data. In the United States and around the world, the risk of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure is a growing concern.
The civil infrastructure of a city or town can suffer greatly if compromised. Most minds go toward data breaches and personal information being sold, which is a serious concern. However, the other side of the issue is services and facilities such as hospitals, food supply, transportation services, etc. being locked down and inoperational.
At minimum 78% of these attacks are financially motivated, meaning systems could be off line for as long as the bad actors are willing to negotiate their demands.
The energy industry was the third most targeted sector for cyberattacks in 2020.
