Managing Security Risks in the Oil and Gas Industry



People, plant, equipment, and procedures are the foundation of oil and gas risk and security. Even when done with the best of intentions, these can and often do contain flaws that are not necessarily apparent from within the organization. The maximum level of protection should be provided against SCADA security and control system security threats to oil and gas control systems that manage the transport and storage of petroleum products. In order to permit human monitoring of intricate physical processes, industrial control systems for security must be dependable and trustworthy. These priorities include occupational safety, environmental safety, and public safety. All security risks, from the most prevalent malware to the pervasive targeted attacks of today, must be handled and reduced.

A joined-up security policy should therefore cover corporate, criminal, civil unrest, cyber, as well as terrorism from internal and/or external threats. This is something that this training course on managing security risks in the oil and gas industry will highlight. Threats do not always come from the traditional "front gate" approach. The greatest danger will be one you did not anticipate
