Objective and Scope
We examined the roles the Department of Energy, Alberta Energy Regulator and the Department of Justice and Solicitor General have to:
- assess risks to Alberta caused by possibly unsecured ICS used in provincially regulated oil and gas infrastructure
- assess whether provincially regulated oil and gas operators have adequate IT security standards for their ICS
The Department of Justice and Solicitor General has assessed the threat of attack on Alberta’s oil and gas industry through ICS and concluded that it is low. However, no Alberta government entity has assessed the impact of an attack if one were to occur.
