We Understand Energy

The dynamics of operating in the energy industry are unique and multi-faceted. Mergers and acquisitions have created challenges in standardizing technology against a constantly changing backdrop. This has resulted in divisions at differing stages of consolidation and IT modernization. Innovation and technology advances are also driving transformation, allowing energy organizations to upgrade outdated infrastructure.  Ensuring the capability and security of your IT backbone has never been more important.

These trends are visible in the form of smarter grids, greener and cleaner sources of energy, and more customer choices.  A proliferation of smart energy assets (including IoT) that could be targets of a cyberbreach are a major consideration.

Our energy clients rely on us to help them meet stringent audit requirements. NetCraftsmen® understands complex regulatory requirements specific to the energy industry and, through our continuous compliance and governance solutions, helps ensure you meet compliance standards now and in the future.

NetCraftsmen has extensive experience successfully delivering results to national and international organizations in the energy industry.
