The Event


2-3 October 2018 London UK

The 5th CS4CA Europe Summit is set in a world where theft of intellectual property, WannaCry-style ransomware and malicious phising attacks are the norm.

Critical assets are the foundation of Europe’s infrastructure. As innovation in technology continues to be adopted, the vulnerabilities of cyber-attacks increase. This evolving digital landscape takes pride of place in frantic boardroom meetings as attacks wreak havoc around the world.

Exclusive keynote sessions from top industry execs present new ideas and different perspectives, whilst interactive panel debates offer delegates the chance to benchmark and discuss differing approaches to today’s challenges. In-depth case studies showcase success stories with tangible and actionable insights into securing infrastructure and assets without affecting day-to-day operations.

Make the most of your 2 days:

    • Meet all the key stakeholders across oil & gas, power generation, utilities, water, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, aviation and maritime and engage with them in meaningful conversations
    • Review recent attacks affecting ICS and exchange ideas with other cyber leaders on lessons learnt and future perspectives
    • Learn from case studies demonstrating how the main players are combatting and recovering from cyber attacks, from both IT and OT perspectives
    • Assess how the latest technology advancements will impact upon your current cyber security posture
    • Demonstrate thought-leadership and showcase your expertise to a senior audience
