Cyber attack puts pipeline industry in hot seat

There has been a cyber-attack on Latitude Technologies, which supplied electronic data interchange services to several large energy providers in the US. Following this, several major US natural gas pipeline was shut off, out of which at least 5 confirmed a service disruption caused due to hacking. However, the companies didn’t alert the US Transportation Security Administration since the same is not mandatory as per the law of the land. Lawmakers are now taking a closer look at the process of handling such threats and how to create tighter regulation.
