This IDC Perspective discusses how the energy sector is strengthening its defense posture in security. The proliferation of energy infrastructure construction makes critical infrastructure protection of utmost importance. IT-OT integration is important to managing threats holistically, and plans to do so should not be discouraged by complexity. It is critical for companies to pursue outside resources to address deficiencies in security measures in the organization. "Energy infrastructure owners can no longer be reactive to cyberthreats and must take a proactive approach in developing a cyberecosystem in pursuit of securing assets." -- Andrew Meyers, research director, Worldwide Oil and Gas at IDC
