VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA—Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) (“Plurilock” or the “Company”), an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, today released the following statement on the recent cyber incident involving Suncor Energy Inc., announced on June 25, 2023.
“Cybercrime within the North American critical infrastructure sector is on the rise. Following the 2021 Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, Plurilock has seen a trend in which oil and gas companies have become primary targets for cybercriminals, and we have believed that similar incidents such as Suncor’s attack would continue to occur in the near future. We encourage all businesses, regardless of industry, to strengthen their cyber defenses and adhere to a zero-trust policy to ensure that cybersecurity requirements are met and society’s most critical assets are secure.”
Plurilock CEO Ian L. Paterson shared further comments about the Suncor attack in a recent article published by the Canadian Press, in which he referred to some of the issues currently faced by Suncor as “just the tip of the iceberg.”
