Cyber-Informed Engineering Transforms IT/OT Convergence in Oil & Gas Operations

Join our webinar for an in-depth look at how CIE (Cyber-Informed Engineering) can help in converging IT and OT security for Oil & Gas operations.

Join us on February 28th or 29th 2024.
There will be 2 live streams of the webinar, please pick the date and time that works best for you.

Oil & Gas Webinar

On this webinar, we'll take you through:

IT/OT integration introduces threats to reliable operations. Connected networks move both data, malware, and remote-control cyber attacks along their wires and cables. In the Oil & Gas industry, E&P, pipelines, and refineries have found that securing IT/OT connections involves more than just having Enterprise Security telling Engineering what to do and Engineering saying “no” to IT over and over. 

However, understanding what “more” means has been the challenge.

Cyber-Informed Engineering (CIE) is a new approach to securing IT/OT convergence – an approach and a perspective that highlights important opportunities. For example, in CIE, worst-case consequences define security requirements for industrial networks, and consequence boundaries define unique spheres of expertise and approaches, including safety engineering, process engineering, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and leveraging industrial data in the cloud.

Join Kevin Rittie, Andrew Ginter, and Alan Acquatella in this webinar as they introduce a new approach to solving long standing challenges by:
