Cyber Security for Energy & Utilities
Critical infrastructure, notably in lifeline sectors such as energy and utilities are primary targets for cyberattacks and cybercrimes. These attacks not only present a threat to the physical critical infrastructure, but also to national security, public safety, economic competitiveness, and personal privacy.
As the Middle East region’s energy and utilities industries are digitalising their assets, they have become exposed to cyber threats more than ever before. In fact, in the past years, the region has been and continue to be a strategic target to cyber-attacks and 50% of these attacks are on the energy industry. These threats are magnified by the speed at which technologies continue to evolve and by the fact that cyber attackers continue to adapt their tactics, techniques, and procedures to evade and defeat the latest prevention and response measures.
In lights of this, Cyber Security in Energy & Utilities Digi-Conference will gather leaders and experts in the sector to address the emerging cyber threats in the ever-evolving digital world and discuss best practices and solutions in identifying and preventing cyber vulnerabilities and safeguarding IT and OT systems effectively and efficiently.
