An oil & gas multinational wants to further its digital transformation by bringing new technologies into all areas of its facilities to capture, transmit and analyze data in real time to improve efficiencies. However, most of the facilities are classified as Class I Division 1 (CID1) hazardous areas where combustible atmospheres permit only specially certified electronic equipment. All zones of the facilities are potentially combustible in the case of a leak or spill. To view a more complete picture of processes in its highly regulated facilities, the company wishes to collect operations, maintenance, workflow, personal health, and other data, but it is concerned about the security of sharing that sensitive data, as cybercriminals and foreign governments pose a real cybersecurity threat.It is critical that the company mitigate risk in their hazardous settings and protect against cyberthreats. A Blend of risk management consulting and tools can help strengthen the multinational’s cyber resilience.
