Malware. Data breaches. Insider threats. Cyber espionage. It's not a question of if you will be attacked but when. In fiscal year 2016, ICS-CERT responded to 290 incidents with the energy sector accounting for 59 of those incidents.1 As cyber threats evolve, the oil and natural gas industry faces unique challenges with the increasingly interconnected delivery of services to a common consumer and supplier base.
To protect our nation's critical infrastructure, the Oil and Natural Gas Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ONG-ISAC) was created in 2014 to provide shared intelligence on cyber incidents, threats, vulnerabilities, and associated responses present throughout our industry.
The ONG-ISAC acts as a dynamic cybersecurity hub for members to communicate and coordinate against network and ICS cyber attacks. The ONG-ISAC enriches intelligence through analysis.
ONG-ISAC serves as a central point of coordination and communication to aid in the protection of exploration and production, transportation, refining, and delivery systems of the ONG industry, through the analysis and sharing of trusted and timely cyber threat information, including vulnerability and threat activity specific to ICS and SCADA systems.
The mission of the ONG-ISAC is structured around four cornerstones:
(1) ICS-CERT Year in Review 2016.
Quickly detect or respond to threats before they impact your enterprise
Learn from others to decrease your overall risk, increase safety, and avoid loss of revenue
Protect your reputation and position your organization ahead of attackers
