Developing Actionable Strategies to Combat the Mounting Cyber Risk to Critical Infrastructure

The 3rd Annual Cyber Security for Oil and Gas Summit is bringing together the oil and gas industry to address critical concerns and trends with regard to the development of cyber security practices.  The complex nature of cyber attacks and those specifically levied against the oil and gas industry have been increasing over the years and while the industry is well prepared, continuous improvement is always necessary to maintain an edge on the nefarious actors working against the industry.

After a number of beneficial summits over the past two years, the 3rd Annual Cyber Security for Oil and Gas Summit being held June 22-25, 2015 in Houston, TX promises to be the next step in a highly advanced industry discussion on cyber security management & continuous improvement practices.  Addressing the imperative objectives of oil and gas industry IT/cyber security groups this summit has historically brought together 100+ industry representatives in a closed forum that breeds constructive discussion of industry challenges, concerns, best practices and strategies for improving individual as well as industry-wide practices in the field of cyber security.  With such a complex and challenging road ahead, can your corporate network and ICS security teams afford not to join the discussion?
