Organizations and workplaces have integrated advanced digital technologies to automate and control physical functions to improve performance and adjust to a rapidly changing generation mix. This has created a larger cyber attack surface and new opportunities for malicious cyber threats. The frequency, scale, and sophistication of cyber threats have increased, and attacks have become easier to launch. Nation-states, criminals, and terrorists regularly probe energy systems to actively exploit cyber vulnerabilities in order to compromise, disrupt, or destroy energy systems. Growing interdependence among workplace systems increases the risk that disruptions might cascade across organizational and geographic boundaries. In response, the government and private sector continue to increase their spending on cybersecurity operations and maintenance. Despite improving defenses, it has become increasingly difficult for many organizations to keep up with growing and aggressive cyber attacks.
