Stringent security regulations and massive pressure on costs
As an energy utility, your company is part of the critical infrastructure that contributes to a society’s security and prosperity. Changing market conditions can impact the way you collaborate internally as well as with external business partners. But you have limited room to maneuver in light of stringent security regulations and massive pressure on costs. Your company’s departments may be working in a challenging climate of (de)regulation of energy production along with distribution involving special-purpose associations, local authority alliances and companies. Perhaps you’re also working on safety-critical projects with these partners and trading your raw materials on national and international exchanges. Against that backdrop it’s more important than ever to protect your expertise. After all, the knowledge within your company is what generates global interest in your technologies and processes – whether for resource mobilization, the construction and operation of power plants, or energy transport and marketing. You need to protect confidential documents shared within the company and with external business partners from unauthorized access, while creating enterprise-wide awareness of the risks involved in handling sensitive information.
