The Event

CYBER SECURITY FOR CRITICAL ASSETS MENA

9th – 10th April 2018Dubai, UAE

Recent cyber-attacks have rocked industries, progressing aggressively from the financial sectors and into the Oil and Gas, Energy, Utility, Chemical, Petrochemical, Water etc. This has made Information Security a top priority for professionals striving to protect our most critical assets; assets, which if compromised, could pose a serious threat to both our economy and safety. The growing frequency and sophistication of these cyber-threats has prompted a huge increase in both funding and attention paid to cyber-security. This however, is not enough, and there is immense need for companies to put in place robust and holistic cyber security policies.

The conference will connect senior level thought leaders across the Oil and Gas, Energy, Utility, Chemical and Petrochemical, Water and Aerospace industries, and allow them to discuss industry challenges, share experiences and investigate the best practice guidelines; moving from recovery-focused to proactive and forward-thinking discussions that will bridge the gap between government, IT and OT senior leaders.
