Oil and Gas Cyber Security, 3rd and 4th June 2014, Oslo, Norway

London (PRWEB UK) 30 April 2014

The number of targeted cyber-attack campaigns increased by 91 per cent in 2013, with each attack lasing three times longer than in 2012, according to the newly released Internet Security Threat Report 2014. It has been found that that oil and gas companies are most at risk of being attacked, with spear phishing the most common breach suffered in 2013 due to the highly valuable and commercially sensitive information they possess on production, exploration plans and assets.
