Top 10 Security Consulting/Services Companies - 2018

The energy sector forms a crucial part of critical national infrastructure, which makes it a valued target for state or non-state players seeking to gain military or political advantage or cause chaos and disruption. In the recent past, attacks on critical infrastructure have surged. As such, the subject of security in the energy sector should be of greater concern. While loss/theft of data may be concerning, loss of electricity or water can be catastrophic. Besides, without a robust security infrastructure, energy providers will be less able to deploy technologies such as smart metering, integration with the Internet of Things (IoT) or ultra-responsive grid switching and management systems.

From a solution and service seeker’s viewpoint, identifying partnership that best aligns to their specific business requirement has become more imperative than ever. After all, a plethora of solution providers, and consulting firms has, in a way, saturated on the market.
