The Event


26th – 27th March 2019 Houston, Texas

While cybercrime steadily increases in the US, the perceived complexity of data security remains a barrier for organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity strategies. Cyber risks are complex and unique to every circumstance, therefore difficult to quantify. But ultimately, all complexities can be broken down. This is the mission of CS4CA USA 2019, returning for a 7th year to Houston in March 26th-27th 2019. IT & OT security experts unite to elucidate the most advanced cybersecurity information and policies to current and future threats jeopardizing American Critical Infrastructure.

2019 Highlights: Exclusive cybersecurity workshop, 6+ hours networking sessions, first-hand real-life case studies, dedicated IT & OT streams to allow delegates to hone-in their specializations, and plenary sessions to address common challenges.

CS4CA USA is a CPD certified summit catered for 250+ C-level security professionals from the Oil & Gas, Energy, Renewables, Chemical, Utilities, Mining, Water, Power, and Maritime industries.

    Qatalyst Global is a senior-level Cyber Security Summit and Industrial IoT Summit provider. CS4CA Summit

    Cyber-Security Workshop

    Moderated by Dr. Sujeet Shenoi, University of Tulsa

    This case-study-based workshop discusses techniques for attacking a number of interconnected critical infrastructure assets, in particular, Internet and IP networks, telecommunications networks, banking networks, oil and gas pipelines, coal mines, wind farms, and power distribution systems. Emphasis is placed on understanding and defending the information technology, industrial control system and physical system layers of critical infrastructure assets. We will also highlight the importance of designing and implementing security solutions that weave science, technology and policy.



    Dr. Sujeet Shenoi is the F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science and a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Tulsa, and a member of the technical staff at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland. An active researcher with specialities in cybersecurity, cyber operations, critical infrastructure protection and digital forensics, Dr Shenoi works on exciting “problems” ranging from helping solve homicides to penetrating telecommunications systems, oil and gas pipelines, wind farms and voting machines.


    Workshop Topics:

    – Why are critical infrastructure assets so easy to attack?
    – How can critical infrastructure owners and operators protect their assets?
    – Can a criminal entity or terrorist group – from the other side of the world – take down the Internet and telecommunications systems?
    – Or launch a worm that disrupts oil and gas pipelines, water and electric power distribution?
    – How will we cope if the outages last for days?

    Limited places available, register early to avoid disappointment!
