From the Shamoon incident that erased 30,000 computers to last year’s coordinated attack that shut down oil & gas shipping in ports in four countries, these are the types of cyber threats that senior decision makers have front of mind when they ask OT security practitioners about cyber risk management programs.

Oil & gas industries have historically had a very good reputation for managing OT & industrial cybersecurity programs. However, government and the public’s confidence in these industries has been shaken in recent months and years. In this infographic we explore the six most serious and most influential attacks on the oil & gas industries in the last decade. From the Shamoon incident that erased 30,000 computers to last year’s coordinated attack that shut down oil & gas shipping in ports in four countries, these are the types of cyber threats that senior decision makers have front of mind when they ask OT security practitioners about cyber risk management programs.

The one attack that impacted regulations, practices and even politics the most profoundly was the Colonial Pipeline ransomware incident. The ransomware took down only IT computers, but the victim shut America’s largest gasoline pipeline for five days out of an “abundance of caution” to ensure that the malware did not spread into the pipeline control network. The attack was widely covered by the media, showing drivers across the East Coast facing long lineups at gas stations, stoked by fears of a regional gasoline shortage. 30 days after the outage, controversial new regulations for the nation’s largest petrochemical pipelines were created on an emergency basis. These regulations were then updated no less than three times in the following 18 months. Given that OT attacks with physical consequences are more than doubling annually, it will be less than a handful of years before we must expect incidents such as this one to become almost commonplace.
