According to recent analysis by KPMG, about half (49%) of power and utility CEOs surveyed say that becoming a victim of a cyber attack is now a case of 'when', and not 'if'. Despite this, only half (51%) say that their organizations are well-prepared to deal with a cyber attack. According to the US Department of Homeland Security's Industrial Control Systems Computer Emergency Response Team, 32% of reported cyber security incidents in fiscal year 2014 were related to the energy industry. In light of sustained cyber security threats from a range of sources, utilities must work to ensure their networks and critical control infrastructure are best positioned to deal with significant attack events, when they occur.
