Security Performance in the Utilities Sector: Steps for Progress

In 2014, Unisys and the Ponemon Institute found that 70% of Utility companies surveyed around the world had been breached. The vast majority of breaches are often not reported publicly- or even worse, they aren’t discovered at all. However, breaches for Utility companies are a big problem: beyond safeguarding critical infrastructure, these companies often hold a large amount of customer data.
