Over the past few years the issue of cyber-security and the threat of hackers stealing data has increased tenfold. Not a day goes by without a breach being reported of a retailer losing the credit card details, passwords or login information of thousands of customers. As these attacks become more sophisticated, so does the defence to prevent them – it’s no wonder hackers are looking for alternative ways and areas to exploit.
One industry that is increasingly coming under the microscope is utilities, a sector which is of importance to any country’s infrastructure. One recent example can be seen in Ukraine where cyber criminals managed to hack an electricity generating plant.
