Industrial Cybersecurity for the Oil & Gas Industry

Claroty empowers upstream, midstream, and downstream oil & gas companies with the industrial cybersecurity controls needed to protect their OT, IoT, IIoT, and BMS assets, as well as all other cyber-physical systems (CPS) in their OT environments.

The Industrial Cybersecurity Challenge facing Oil & Gas Companies

Global fuel shortages, volatile barrel prices, record-high inflation, worsening source depletion, and growing prioritization of sustainability are among many factors driving digital transformation in oil & gas. From groundbreaking innovations that optimize exploration and production, to cloud connectivity that correlates real-time density and porosity data across platforms and pipelines to boost throughput, to robotic drilling and refining systems that enhance efficiency and safety while reducing emissions — the benefits of automation, IT/OT connectivity, and cyber-physical systems (CPS) are why their once-manual, analog counterparts are becoming relics of the past.

But for many oil & gas companies, these benefits are being outpaced by industrial cybersecurity risks. This unfortunate reality has repeatedly manifested in the form of ransomware and other cyber attacks that exploit security weaknesses in the CPS on which the availability, integrity, and safety of oil & gas operations and infrastructure rely. Mitigating these risks and, ultimately, gaining cyber and operational resilience requires a new approach that extends far beyond traditional, IT-oriented security solutions. Enter Claroty.

Key Principles for Securing OT in Oil & Gas

Securing the OT environments that underpin upstream, midstream, and/or downstream oil & gas operations and infrastructure requires following three key principles:

1. Gain visibility into all CPS in your OT environment

Asset visibility is foundational to industrial cybersecurity — which is why all segments of the oil & gas industry must attain a complete, real-time inventory of all OT, IoT, and BMS assets and other CPS across all drilling sites, platforms, pipelines, plants, and refineries. It’s also why Claroty is proud to deliver the industry-leading visibility our oil & gas customers need to secure the OT environments on which their critical assets and operations rely.

2. Integrate your existing IT tools & workflows with OT

Since most CPS in upstream, midstream, and downstream oil & gas use proprietary protocols and legacy systems, they are incompatible with IT-oriented solutions — but that doesn’t mean such solutions have no place in OT. Rather than require customers to expand their already-extensive tech stacks, Claroty integrates with them. As a result, our oil & gas customers can simply extend their existing tools and workflows from IT to OT.

3. Extend your IT security controls & governance to OT

Unlike their IT counterparts, most OT environments lack essential cybersecurity controls and consistent governance. Claroty eliminates this gap for our oil & gas customers. After providing visibility into all CPS and integrating your existing IT tools and workflows with OT, Claroty extends your existing IT controls to OT — unifying your security governance and driving all use cases on your journey to cyber and operational resilience.

Driving Cyber Resilience from IT to OT with Claroty

The Claroty journey to cyber resilience empowers upstream, midstream, and downstream oil & gas companies to extend — and further optimize — the following cybersecurity use cases and governance areas from IT to OT:

Asset Discovery

Claroty’s automated asset discovery capabilities create a centralized inventory that serves as the foundation for all cyber resilience use cases, equipping oil & gas companies with real-time visibility into all OT, IoT, and BMS assets and all other CPS across your OT environment.

Vulnerability Management

Claroty extends your IT vulnerability management controls to OT by automatically detecting, assessing, and recommending remedial actions for CPS vulnerabilities across drilling sites, platforms, pipelines, plants, and refineries, enabling you to prioritize and deploy mitigations to minimize risk exposure.

Network Protection

Claroty hardens OT environments in all oil & gas segments against cyber threats by defining network segmentation policies that can be easily enforced by your existing firewall and NAC solutions, as well as providing secure remote access purpose-built with controls for internal and third-party OT users.

Threat Detection

Claroty enables oil & gas companies to continuously monitor for and respond to the earliest indicators of threats — ranging from ransomware attacks, to equipment failures, to rogue insiders — before they impact operational availability, process integrity, physical safety, regulatory compliance, or other critical assets.

Boosting Operational Resilience from IT to OT with Claroty

The Claroty journey to operational resilience equips upstream, midstream, and downstream oil & gas companies to extend and optimize the following security and operational use cases and governance areas from IT to OT:

Asset Discovery

Operational resilience starts with full visibility into all CPS in your OT environment. Claroty’s automated asset discovery capabilities deliver just this — empowering oil & gas companies with the complete, real-time visibility you need as the foundation for all operational resilience use cases.

Change Management

Change management is essential to governance, compliance, maintenance, vendor management, and procurement decisions enterprise-wide. Claroty empowers MoC programs across IT and OT with continuous asset and operational monitoring and flexible reporting to inform these and related decisions.

Asset Management

Claroty streamlines and enhances asset management for oil & gas companies by harnessing in-depth asset insights and an enriched CMDB via ready-made integrations to monitor for asset updates, enable SLA compliance, and optimize supply chain management and procurement.

OT Remote Access

Claroty Secure Remote Access (SRA) delivers highly secure and granularly controlled remote access that is frictionless to use and administer and supports all OT remote access use cases key to all oil & gas industry segments: from OT remote maintenance, to auditing, to vendor management and more.

Streamlining Compliance for all Oil & Gas Segments

Complying with industry standards and regulations is a complex, ever-evolving endeavor for organizations in all oil & gas segments. Claroty helps streamline audits and compliance not only with respect to cybersecurity but also in adjacent areas — from safety, to availability, to sustainability, and more. Highlights include:

Regulations & Legislation

Claroty’s support for the entire CPS security journey supports and simplifies oil & gas companies' compliance with the requirements set forth by: TSA, EPA, NERC-CIP, NIS 2.0, RCE, SOCI/SLACIP, TRIPC, MSE-428(98), and many more.

Recommended Practices & Frameworks

Compliance with the following cybersecurity practices and standards is seamlessly enabled by the controls offered by Claroty’s portfolio: CISA CPGs, IEC 62443, NIST CSF, CIS, ISO 27001, U.S. Executive Order 14028, and many more.
