Innovation, cybersecurity and the energy infrastructure

Date
04 May 2021

As a vital system in modern society, energy infrastructure is a prime target for adversaries and represents a critical vulnerability deserving of special attention. Energy infrastructure and supply chain often feature prominently as targets to be disrupted or defended in a military campaign, or as a priority for restoration in disaster relief.

During times of economic growth, there is constant work to, at the minimum, build up and maintain infrastructure, and where possible innovate and improve infrastructure to enhance security and resiliency. There are competing tensions in promoting innovation while ensuring that the infrastructure remains secure.

Sandra Seah and Jonathan Kao explore the competing tensions in innovation, cybersecurity and the energy infrastructure in Singapore further in this article.
