Cybersecurity Assessments for Companies in the Energy Sector

What do the energy sector and cybersecurity have in common? Both are critical to our everyday lives, and both can be incredibly complex. Businesses, clients, and customers are all equally affected by energy availability. It’s needed to heat and cool homes, keep the internet functional, provide transportation, and in any other number of circumstances. A successful cyber attack compromises that stream of accessibility. Domain Technology Group’s performance of regular cybersecurity assessments for companies in the energy sector is an essential service, keeping your cybersecurity measures and regulatory compliance up to date and at their maximum efficiency.

Cybersecurity Assessments for Companies in the Energy Sector

The energy sector is a target for cybercriminals due to how lucrative the information is and the fallout that could occur by disrupting or damaging critical infrastructure. The only people who could understand how valuable your data is more than your energy company are cybercriminals interested in leveraging it to further their own private interests. When network integrity and safety are a priority, working with Domain Technology Group provides accessibility to high-performance services to examine your network, determine the level and scale of its vulnerability, and institute proactive remediation efforts to keep your IT environment secure and protected from current and future threat agents.

The Domain Technology Group Assessment Process

The more complex a procedure, the greater the opportunity for failure. Adding additional moving pieces within any given project compounds the chances that the final results will be underwhelming if not executed to perfection. For maximum yield with our efforts, Domain Technology Group aspires to keep our cybersecurity assessment practices simple, direct, and comprehensive.

To that end, we have whittled our systematic approach down to four key steps:

  1. Take an inventory of the system.
  2. Assign a level of importance to each component (how critical is it for the element in question to be secure?)
  3. Scan each component for threats and vulnerabilities, finding the weaknesses of the components.
  4. Prioritize the most crucial identified vulnerabilities to improve your network security stance quickly.

The level to which your cybersecurity assessment extends is customizable based on your business’ needs, goals, and restrictions. In reality, most companies in the energy sector don’t need a thorough investigation of every nook, cranny, and cavity within their infrastructure. While we’re capable of a full assessment of your entire network, identifying and targeting specific areas of your IT environment is more approachable both for our experts and your in-house teams and decision-makers.

A cybersecurity assessment is only the first step in protecting your network from potential incursion. Once you have your data reports in hand, acting on that intelligence still needs to be done. Who better than the company that provided that information in the first place? We believe that every organization is unique and therefore requires a customized approach to cybersecurity.

Our team of certified security experts will work with you to understand your specific needs and vulnerabilities. We then develop a tailored plan to help you safeguard your data and systems. Our assessment services cover many security risks, including malware, phishing, and social engineering attacks. We also offer guidance on best practices for password management, data encryption, and intrusion detection. With our help, you can be confident that your organization is taking all the necessary steps to protect its data and stay compliant with industry regulations.
