Energy Sector Cybersecurity Workshop Webinar

Gain insights on the latest concerns surrounding supply chain, ransomware and threat modelling

Gain insights on latest concerns surrounding supply chain, ransomware and threat modelling


Event Information

The past year has seen many high profile cyber-attacks occurring globally. Just within the past six months, we have witnessed supply chain attacks such as SolarWinds, Accellion and Microsoft Exchange and operational technology (OT) attacks such as the Oldsmar water plant hack in Florida. Ransomware is also on the rise. The most recent Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack is a case in point, where an attack on the company’s IT system resulted in a business decision to shut down gas supply in its pipelines, resulting in public disruption.

These have led cyber regulators locally and abroad to institute tighter regulations and guidelines. For example, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) released its Threat Modelling Guide in February to be incorporated in the mandatory risk assessment that Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) Owners must submit annually; CSA will also be rolling out a CII Supply Chain Programme in the third quarter of this year. In the United States, the President has issued an extensive Executive Order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity; the Department of Homeland Security has also issued a security directive that requires critical pipeline owners and operators to take significant steps to improve cybersecurity.

In view of the developments above, KPMG in Singapore has organised a webinar session for the energy sector to address the concerns that stakeholders might have. We will also be joined by industrial cybersecurity company, Claroty.
