Palo Alto, CA, April 06, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The threats to oil and gas firms are acute now, so companies involved in the industry more than ever need to improve their cyber security. This requirement makes conferences and other security events dedicated to the industry-specific needs of great importance.
The CYpBER security conference addresses major cyber security issues in the Oil & Gas industry. It gathers government officials, leading experts from Oil&Gas sector and ITC security professionals to discuss critical concerns and trends in cyber security for the oil & gas industry and raise awareness in this area.
Alexander Polyakov, CTO at ERPScan, was invited to the conference as a distinguished speaker. He proved his in-depth knowledge by delivering presentations at world-famous security conferences such as RSA and BlackHat. As usual, he will share his unique practical experience and findings in this area. This time, Alexander will focus on the latest tendencies and highlight the main attack vectors that allow hackers to steal oil.
“No need to say that companies that deal with natural recourses are an attractive target for hacktivists and state-sponsored attackers. Moreover, these attacks become increasingly complex and sophisticated targeting both IT and OT infrastructures. I’m glad to have a chance to participate in CYpBER, as this promising conference is aimed to exchange knowledge in such critical and complicated area of cyber security,” commented Alexander Polyakov.
