You can listen to my Podcast this month, presented by IBM Security Intelligence Staff: Boost Energy and Utilities Security By Reducing SOC Complexity</  

Top Three Security Trends in the Energy Sector

Scarcella has spent two decades with IBM handling concerns related to energy and utilities. In the podcast, she identifies three major security trends affecting the industry:

  1. Single-pane-of-glass security solutions: Reduced complexity and enhanced usability are critical for improved security.
  2. Stopping advanced persistent threats (APTs): Scarcella points to solutions like IBM QRadar Advisor. In its first energy and utilities application, the tool not only found existing Stuxnet malware but did so in minutes instead of hours.
  3. Handling insider threats: Organizations must effectively manage privilege escalation to handle emerging insider threats.
