  • (1888PressRelease) July 24, 2015 - The rapid evolution of technology has had many positive effects for oil and gas industrial processes, improving delivery and speeding up efficiency. However, it has also allowed for greater vulnerabilities and a host of new threats from hacktivists and cyber criminals. By 2018, the oil and gas industry will be spending up to $1.87 billion on cyber security. This increase in demand to protect the sector's most sensitive industrial control systems and critical infrastructure is being spurred on by the ever growing cyber threat across the globe.

    Against this backdrop, SMi's 5th annual Oil and Gas Cyber Security conference, taking place on the 30th November - 1st December 2015 in London, will provide the ideal platform for key industry leaders and experts to address developments on how to improve protection of highly valuable intellectual property and commercially sensitive information.

    Plus, don't miss the post-conference workshop on:
    The Shiny Objects Are Great But What About The People? | 2nd December 2015, London, UK
    Led by: Tim Harwood, Managing Director, Harwood Security and Training Consultancy Limited

    It is well known that, when questioned, most ICS staff and security people consider the biggest vulnerability in their ICS environment to be the People themselves. Yet, companies persist on spending vast amounts of their budgets on quick-fix technology rather than going to the root of the problem and educating their staff. This workshop will explore the steps needed to help companies take that first step.
