5th Annual Cyber Security for Energy & Utilities

Prevent, protect, detect, monitor and respond to cyber threats affecting critical infrastructure

With the number of DDoS attacks resulting into an exponential rise in APTs, AVTs and SMTs apart from a wide complexity of these threats, especially in the GCC, organisations are focussing to build a comprehensive cyber security mechanism that will be using zero-day exploitation and SIEM scenarios to enhance preparedness. At the same time, ISO27001 implementation is being driven across in the GCC, especially in the UAE where companies have been setting deadlines to achieve these standards by next year. An equally important aspect driving companies is to bridge the gap between OT and IT security to bring the level of robustness required in the ever-evolving cyber landscape and improve operational cyber resilience of organisations.

IQPC is pleased to announce the 5th Edition of Cyber Security for Energy & Utilities Conference from 24–27 April 2016 at The Westin Golf Resort in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
