DRIVING OT AND IT CYBER RESILIENCE IN THE IR 4.0 ERA


With the increased need to optimize digitalization strategies and technologies within the energy and utilities sector, cyber security remains key to securing and protecting business continuity from critical threats. In fact, in the GCC region, 50% of cyber security attacks target the energy and utility sectors. These threats are magnified by the drive towards IR 4.0 and the speed at which technologies continue to evolve.

Cyber attackers are also continuously adapting their tactics, techniques, and procedures to evade and defeat the latest prevention and response methods causing a national security alert and requiring decision-makers to take crucial measures and protect their critical assets.

In line with these developments, the 3rd Cyber Security for Energy & Utilities Conference is hosted on the 8-9 May 2023, in Abu Dhabi, UAE, to provide an annual platform for industry experts from the region’s national oil and gas companies, power generation, and utilities, to meet and share knowledge and contribute to the development of cyber resilience of the industry. The conference will address the emerging cyber threats, explore the best practices and solutions to identify and prevent vulnerabilities and effectively safeguard IT and OT systems, and key strategies to ensure a successful digitalization and business continuity with minimal risks.
