Cyber attacks on drilling control systems can cause enormous harm to people, the environment and equipment. The drilling process cannot simply stop if such an event is detected. Further, it’s possible that the response to a cyber attack can even worsen the situation.

Developed under the auspices of the IADC Cybersecurity Subcommittee.
