Staying Current With the Transportation Security Administration’s Oil and Gas Security Directives

TSA Pipeline Compliance Flows Smoothly With Tripwire


Escalating cyberthreats in the oil and gas industry underscore the need for substantial collaboration between public and private sectors to mitigate this national security risk, and much of this responsibility falls on the shoulders of individual pipeline operators who need to comply with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Security Directive.

Despite being best known for its role in air travel security, the TSA also oversees safety standards for pipelines transporting natural gas, oil, and other hazardous liquids. This poses unique difficulties for operators, who need to stay informed of dynamic security threats while managing their pipeline networks and adapting to evolving regulatory demands.

This guide summarizes the requirements of the most recent TSA Security Directive and maps them to capabilities provided by Fortra's Tripwire solutions.
