A webinar by the Cyber Security Special Interest Group (CySSIG) on 25 May will discuss how to effectively protect and secure data and systems against cyber attacks
With almost half of the world’s known oil and gas reserves, and much of the capacity to process or utilise them, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is a cornerstone of today’s global energy and industrial system. As the region’s energy and utilities industries continue to digitalise their assets, they have increasingly become targets of cyber threats. In fact, the region has been and continues to be a strategic target of cyber attacks and 50% of these attacks are on the energy industry.
Effectively protecting and securing data and systems through the supply chain is now a business imperative for every company. This webinar by the Cyber Security Special Interest Group (CySSIG) will demonstrate how to do this effectively, bearing in mind that modern day operations often span complex IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) infrastructures.
A feature of the webinar will be the presentation on the potential effects that the dangerous, new malware called PIPEDREAM could cause and how to address them. A group of experts in the field will present firsthand accounts of the challenges faced, such as PIPEDREAM, and the value of modern solutions. The presentations will be followed by a moderated panel session where attendees will have the opportunity to question the speakers individually and as a group.
This webinar, which takes place at 10.30 GST (UTC+4) is free to attend for CySSIG members. Registrants will be able to access the recorded presentations after the event. Join the group – there is no charge – and participate in this and future events. You can register at the website: www.cyssig.org/cyssig_webinar_2205.php
