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 adversaries evolve and organizations apply new technology to improve productivity and efficiency, security teams are racing to adopt innovative approaches to safeguard systems and mitigate risk.

Listen to the leaders—learn to better defend your critical assets

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

Register today to explore a diverse range of topics, including:

  • 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

ICS Solutions Forum: October 1 | 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT (14:00 - 18:00 UTC)

Chair: Don Weber
How can organizations prepare their IT and OT teams to be ready for security incidents? What are the techniques and tools the teams can use to improve the identification, containment, and eradication of suspicious or malicious activities to improve response times and reduce recovery efforts? This briefing will explore these questions through invited speakers while showcasing current capabilities available today. Vendor presentations will focus on case-studies and specific capabilities that may improve communication and response activities during an actual security incidents.
