Operational Security Success

Chairman: Doug Wylie
CPE Credits: 8
Summit Date: October 1, 2018
Training Dates: October 2-6, 2018

Protecting critical infrastructure has never been more important. In recent years, we’ve seen highly sophisticated attacks on oil and gas systems that have interrupted operations and caused damage. As organizations apply automation to improve productivity and efficiency, security teams are racing to find innovative approaches to safeguard systems and mitigate risk.

The SANS Oil & Gas Cybersecurity Summit will bring together leading experts to discuss trends, challenges, and opportunities. Industry leaders will address recent attacks and current threats, integrated IT/OT security operations, best practices, and lessons learned to benefit the community.

Join us at the Oil & Gas Cybersecurity Summit to further develop your skills and build a plan for achieving operational security success.

The Summit will explore the following topics:

  • Incident response workflows – from detection to recovery
  • Security in the supply chain – upstream, midstream, and downstream
  • Ever-flattening architecture and the security effects
  • Security key performance indicators (KPIs) and dashboards
  • Security Operation Centers (SOCs) for the new integrated enterprise

What attendees say about their Summit experience

“SANS is the security industry standard for training, and the coursework and labs are directly transferable to your place of work the day after class.” - Mike Hoffman, Shell Oil Products

“Every single session is packed with volumes of really valuable information delivered clearly.” - Quint Wysor, Duke Energy

Attendees networking

Network with your peers and make invaluable connections

In addition to in-depth discussions on oil and gas cyber security, the Summit gives you the opportunity to network with fellow attendees during breaks and an evening reception. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest takeaways from SANS Summits is the many industry connections they forge or deepen during their time with us.

Bundle your Summit experience with a closely aligned course to expand your information security expertise

After the one-day Summit, choose from closely aligned, immersive ICS security courses to expand your information security expertise. Courses are taught by experienced practitioners who are among the best cybersecurity instructors in the world. They will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to help you achieve operational security success.
