SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In response to growing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the power and utilities (P&U) industry, Dalrada Financial Corporation (OTCQB: DFCO, “Dalrada Corporation”, Dalrada”) – an innovator in clean energy, healthcare and technology – today announced the appointment of cyber-intelligence industry expert Heather McMahon to its board Clean Energy Advisory.
Ensuring data security is paramount to the continued success of clean energy technology, and preventing cyberattacks on energy infrastructure can eliminate breaches and industry shutdowns before they become national emergencies, regional and local.
Now more than half (53%) of P&U cybersecurity leaders are concerned about their ability to manage threats, with the sector presenting an attractive target due to its societal impact. Across all sectors of the energy industry, businesses today face broader and more sophisticated threats, including weak links in supply chains and increased vulnerability with the continued adoption of initiatives of digital transformation.
