Oil and gas companies continue to be at a disadvantage when facing cyberattacks because they are not sharing information about incidents, experts said Tuesday at the American Petroleum Institute Cybersecurity Conference & Expo in Houston.
Although a few trusted professionals at oil and gas companies know each other and share information about attacks, communication has been limited and the need for more is extremely high, speakers said.
“We all talk about how we need to share information but we’re not doing it. Why?” said Stuart Wagner, director of information technology security at pipeline giant Enterprise Products Partners. “It’s something everybody thinks is a great idea but it’s not out there.”
