While media coverage of cyber-attacks mostly focuses on data breaches at major brands such as Target, Sony, or financial institutions, the nation's critical infrastructure is equally if not more at risk from advanced persistent threats (APTs). Energy providers that operate electric grids, gas pipelines, and nuclear power plants are prime targets for APTs because a successful attack could have wide-reaching impacts on the economy and civic stability. Protecting the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber threats initiated by bad actors who are well-organized and funded is difficult because of system complexity in the energy sector. Some areas where organizations fall short include securing the interfaces between diverse systems and understanding how their security infrastructure functions. The RiskSense Platform is destine to assist energy companies and utility providers to tackle their cyber security challenges, offering functionality such as “Virtual Scanning” to accommodate for the special conditions that exist in the industry.
