F15 - Cybersecurity

The industrial world is becoming more digitally connected, resulting in smarter and more productive operations. With the increasing amount of data, internet-connected devices and automation, cybersecurity is a higher priority than ever. Being the largest industry in the world, oil and gas companies are a major target for cyberattacks. No organisation, regardless of size or industry, is immune to cyberattacks, and just one breach could cause significant catastrophic/safety financial, reputational or regulatory consequences. So, today’s oil and gas industry needs more innovative and efficient ways to maintain security. This session will present how the oil and gas industry maintains safety, efficiency and capitalises on innovative, cost-saving technologies and big data without compromising security, operations and the environment.
