Cybersecurity ALERT: OPpetrol cyber-attack threatens June 20th attack on the Energy sector

As reported in the press and in a YouTube video, the Anonymous Group has issued a threat dubbed OPpetrol, to attack Western energy interests. While the credibility of the threat has yet to be verified, this latest action represents an unprecedented and brazen threat to do harm to a sector already highly targeted over the last year. Fortunately, energy companies and others in critical infrastructure operations have begun to step-up their cybersecurity in an effort to thwart cyber-attacks, reduce the risks of disruptions, and modernize operational system management.
