CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 18, 2014 /CNW/ -- The first ever Cyber Security for Oil and Gas Summit Canada will take place in Calgary this January 26-28 at The Westin Calgary. After running two successful Cyber Security for Oil & Gas Summits in Houston, IQPC is proud to introduce the event to Canada.
The Canadian oil and gas industry is progressively under more dangerous cyber security attacks. In fact, Canada is number four in phishing attacks in the world. This summit will bring together CTOs, CSOs, CISOs and IT professionals to discuss the most efficient and cost effective strategies to prevent cyber attacks. The summit will examine industry-specific insight within the oil and gas spectrum, in order to overcome challenges like targeted cyber attacks, data loss and exploitation.
Industry leaders from IBM, Lockheed Martin, ATCO, Chevron, Fluor Federal Petroleum Operations, City of Calgary, Enbridge, Cenovus Energy, Palo Alto Networks, (ISC)2 and AECOM will be speaking at the event. Key topics include: development of complex network architecture, balancing risk mitigation and compliance, forensic analysis of ICS related cyber attacks and data loss prevention.
The summit will feature a live-hacking demonstration and explanation of common cyber security attacks and good defense. Patrick McNallen, Vice President, at Elbit Systems, who was an attendee at our past event, said, "Excellent conference to bring the oil and gas industry together and share cyber security issues and solutions."
