A CSO Magazine study has confirmed that the financial cost attributed to cyber incidents are mounting. The Energy Industry led this trend with incidents in this sector costing the most. 24% of the surveyed companies reported their losses from security breaches to be in excess of $10 Million [Source: 2014 Global State of Information Security Survey, PricewaterhouseCoopers, CIO magazine, CSO magazine, September 2013].

Jasvir Gill, long considered an expert in security and critical infrastructure protection, was invited to return to IHA CERAWeek to address the Energy Innovation Pioneers class of 2014. As a distinguished alum he will remind the audience that in spite of increased spending on security, companies are facing a growing number of attacks that are more complex in nature. According to Jasvir Gill, “Cybersecurity threats now extend well beyond just IT-related attacks. Intruders are extending their attack vectors to combine this with threats to physical security and SCADA Industrial Control Systems.” Jasvir adds, “Attacks that are complex in nature, need more sophisticated solutions that can extend across the entire enterprise.”

AlertEnterprise has developed security technology that bridges the gap between IT and OT (Operational Technology) to deliver 360-degree situational awareness and incident response for corporate and critical infrastructure protection. Jasvir goes on to add, “AlertEnterprise now delivers solutions to the Energy Industry with partners to help improve operational reliability, protect operating assets and respond quicker to a range of vulnerabilities and persistent threats from cyber, physical or insider sources.”

Previously, AlertEnterprise announced an agreement with SAP AG. Under the terms of the agreement, SAP will resell specific AlertEnterprise software products as SAP Physical Security Management by AlertEnterprise and SAP Critical Infrastructure Protection by AlertEnterprise.
