Information Security in a Digital World: Building resilience into a distributed data architectureBe Energized Podcast
02/15/22 • 27 min
Security is a key focus for many grid operators and IT specialists. It has now become a priority for many utilities. There is a growing need to have access to more data across the enterprise, but this also means that more utility data is exposed to potential threats. Secure devices, secure communication links and secure systems are typical tools that utilities employ to thwart would-be attackers.
In the utilities sector, a data breach can be costly. Last May the Colonial Pipeline was hacked followed shortly by two successful breaches of a United States municipal water supply. This had a massive impact for the utilities and their clients. We discuss the topic with William White in today's episode. William White (Dub) has recently joined Greenbird as Corporate Information Security Officer and has extensive experience in information and cybersecurity solutions for companies.
In this podcast you will learn:
- Types and examples of security breaches
- How organizations can protect against a breach
- The difference between information and cybersecurity
- The importance of focusing on resilience and recovery
- The cost of a security breach
