A Cyberattack on the Fuel Pipeline... What Does That Mean to Me as a Business Leader?

This is likely not the first blog post or article you’ve seen surrounding the recent cyberattack on the fuel pipeline.

The last few days the media has been filled with information covering this cyberattack and has most people fearful and panicked.

If you are like most business leaders, news like this leaves you concerned if your business is at risk of similar cyber crimes. The answer is yes- you are at risk. In today’s technology centered world, you are not safe in cyberspace- and it is no longer a matter of if you could experience a cyberattack, but when you will experience one.

So what does this mean to you as a business leader? What can you be doing? What can you be asking yourself?

  1. Is your technology aligned with your strategic plan?
  2. Does your strategic plan assume breach?
  3. Do you have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place.
  4. Have you had conversation with your Managed Service Provide- what are the steps they are taking and you need to be taking to mitigate these threats?
  5. Are you continually educating yourself and your employees on security awareness and the best security practices?

These are questions you need to be asking yourself and asking yourself continuously as your business and the cyber world continually evolve.
