The oil and gas industry is one of the most important sectors to the infrastructure and economy of the United Kingdom.

It is a multi-billion pound industry which is part of the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), meaning that it is necessary for the country to function, and cannot afford any down time.

This also means that it is a major target for cyberterrorism, as a successful attack could cause widespread disruption and panic. If the oil and gas industry was hit, national security would be significantly compromised, opening the door to further acts of terrorism - cyber or otherwise.

Information Assurance Services for Oil and Gas

  • Cyber Essentials: As a Cyber Essentials certification body, we can confer Cyber Essentials credentials on your business if you prove that you have comprehensive and robust cyber security measures in place. Cyber Essentials is essential for businesses in critical infrastructure industries.
  • Gap analysis: The Internet of Things (IoT) market for the oil and gas industry is on the rise and is expected to keep growing at a high rate until 2022. We can conduct gap analysis to determine the areas in which you are failing to fulfil your cyber security obligations, and the changes you can make to fix that.
  • Penetration testing: We can also provide Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scanning services to detect any problems with your network and offer solutions. We will help to implement incident management, disaster recovery and business continuity plans if necessary to ensure your business is prepared for a cyber attack.
  • Security awareness training: Human error is the biggest vulnerability for many businesses, but only because of a lack of knowledge. We provide security awareness training to educate staff in the dangers of cyber attacks and how to prevent them.

There is also a huge workforce to consider - thousands of employees working within the industry across the UK and beyond. This heightens the risk of human error, and if personnel data is exposed, a lot of people will be at risk, and some could potentially be targeted with threats or blackmail.

With so much at stake, organisations involved in this industry will be judged by their stance on cyber security, so they must be able to prove that they are taking their responsibilities seriously.
