Cybersecurity: Protecting energy & industrial IoT

Monday, March 9

04:00 pm - 04:50 pm

The energy industry is used to managing security and integrity in remote operations. However, the increased digital connectivity between operational facilities and equipment leads to an imbalance of cybersecurity threats from a small set of bad actors or hacktivists. These aren’t just threats to physical security and operational integrity: sensitive proprietary data is also at risk. How are cybersecurity risks growing as the industry digitalizes? How are integrity and compliance assured through the supply chain? What are the current best practices in cybersecurity solutions? How will cybersecurity evolve to stay ahead of threats?
