Challenges 2021 holds for cybersecurity in Australia’s energy sector
If 2020 has been the year of unprecedented disruption on a global scale, 2021 will be the one when many people begin picking up the pieces.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused unexpected and rapid change on all fronts. With virtually no warning, energy companies had to shift most of their staff into a “work-from-home” mode. Meanwhile, IT teams had to quickly put in the infrastructure to allow access to core applications and data stores.
On the security front, chief information security officers and their teams in the energy sector wrestled with the best ways to provide secure links for a dispersed workforce while maintaining effective protection against cyberattacks. In many cases, they brought forward investments they had slated for the future to help tackle the new challenges.
Now it’s time to consider what 2021 might have in store and determine how some of these trends might develop in the year ahead.
