G7 Aims to Better Protect Energy Systems from Cyber Attack

G7  leaders commit to strengthen the cybersecurity of the global supply chain.

The G7 is to establish a collective cybersecurity framework around operational technologies for both manufacturers and operators.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that G7 leaders “committed to taking critical action to strengthen the cybersecurity of the global supply chain of key technologies used to manage and operate electricity, oil, and natural gas systems across the world” in a statement.

According to media reports, the initiative will seek to address the continuous cyberattacks targeting energy systems around the world, noting that the energy sector continues to be “heavily targeted by adversarial countries and criminals” with cyberattacks, and the G7 has pledged to increase resilience and security while also encouraging manufacturers to build more secure products. 

“To incentivize tech companies to build more secure Internet of Things products we will promptly explore avenues towards establishing mutual recognition of schemes for reliable cyber-safe products,” they said.
