IADC Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Cybersecurity Risks to Drilling Assets

Cyber attacks on drilling control systems can cause enormous harm to people, the environment and equipment. These guidelines, the only guidance specifically for drilling operations, draw from international standards to provide a means to assess the risk to drilling rigs from cyber attacks. 25 pages.

Committee Initiatives

  • We plan to continue working the guidelines issue, though considering a revised completion date sometime into 2021 due to unforeseen COVID-19 related resource constraints.
