Check out our connected energy infrastructure case study

See how implementing KeyScaler meant that the customer could take advantage of a faster time to value by using prebuilt
integrations to enterprise IoT platforms, leveraging existing PKI infrastructure, and securing critical operational data.


The Challenges:

Predicted to be worth $15 billion by 2024, what challenges face the security of IoT in the energy sector:

  • Use of legacy/brownfield devices, for example, many utilities companies use legacy supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems which were never intended to be connected. The addition of connected functionality to old systems can result in security weaknesses.
  • Rapid Growth – 88% of oil and gas companies consider advancement in IoT a priority. Sometimes this fast-tracking can mean that security is over-looked
  • Complex environments – energy and utilities environments can often be unique in their complexity and devices are often used to automate processes in remote and hard-to-reach locations. This can present challenges if manual intervention is needed to update or isolate a device in order to maintain security.

Some history:
