Webinar: Geopolitical cyber threats: best practice for critical infrastructure resilience

Webinar: Geopolitical cyber threats

Join our webinar on June 23rd, 10.00 CEST

Recent high-profile cyber-attacks on the energy industry, such as the security breach of the Colonial Pipeline in 2021, and a series of attacks disabling Ukraine’s power grid in the mid-to-late 2010s, have lifted cyber security up the sector’s corporate agenda in recent years. Concerns over the security of critical infrastructure have been exacerbated by increasing political tensions in Europe this year.

Industrial operators are facing new threats to their cyber security. Network-connected control systems are opening the door for cyber criminals to gain access to - and control of - critical infrastructure, elevating the risk of supply disruption to services, and harm to life, property, and the environment. Amid rising geopolitical tensions, companies with industrial operations are now more prominent targets for cyber-attacks. They face the urgent need to assess where their critical infrastructure is vulnerable and how to raise their resilience.

In this webinar, Jalal Bouhdada and Trond Solberg discuss the threat of geopolitical tensions on industrial cyber security and their top five practical recommendations for preparing and responding to potential escalations. They will also share latest findings about the state of cyber security in today’s global energy sector based on DNV’s recently released report The Cyber Priority, which investigates executives’ understanding of the cyber risks their businesses face and their strategies for managing the evolving threat.

This webinar aims to provide practical security analysis and OT best practices to support Critical Infrastructure with raising the level of preparedness and overall resilience in the face of potential cyberattacks.

This webinar is specifically useful for:
CISOs, security officers, managers, engineers, asset owners and operators in operational technology.
