Conference Documentation: Oil and Gas Cyber Security

Cyber security is becoming an increasingly prevalent threat within modern day business and operations. We are observing an ongoing digitalisation in operations and services resulting in more vulnerabilities within an organisation’s framework. With some of the most critical infrastructure, pipelines and operations now being controlled by digital networks, Cyber Security is no longer merely an information risk but a corporate responsibility.

SMI’s 5th annual Oil & Gas Cyber Security conference will bring together the leading specialists in the field and provide a platform of discourse for cyber security professionals within the Oil & Gas Sector to address some of the most pressing challenges and developments. With cyber-attacks becoming more sophisticated, targeted and malicious many factors will play into an organisation’s ability to prevent, detect, respond and mitigate a breach.
