Join Latest Attendees Including RasGas, Petrobras, INPEX, Total, Statoil, RWE, Saudi Petroleum, Essar Oil and More at SMi's 3rd Annual Oil and Gas Cyber Security

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London (PRWEB UK) 22 November 2013 The oil and gas sector is rapidly evolving to meet increased demand by expanding asset portfolios and updating infrastructure. To support these industry changes, technology is advancing and infrastructural processes are being transformed - improved interconnectivity between business systems and networks within the oil and gas infrastructure setting are enhancing operations, but also exposing new avenues for system threats and vulnerabilities. Cyber security breaches to critical infrastructure can have grave consequences resulting in loss of revenue, operational disruption, environmental damage and danger to personnel.

Cyber security incidents worldwide are increasing daily and one of the most vulnerable sectors is oil and gas where over 2 million threats of varying complexity are experienced weekly. Cyber criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated, highly organised and constantly inventing ways to bypass traditional defences such as anti-virus and firewalls. With such attacks increasing in frequency and sophistication, oil and gas companies are faced with an urgent need to protect their highly valuable intellectual property and commercially sensitive information.

Against this backdrop, oil and gas companies now are heavily investing in establishing the most comprehensive security systems for their assets and digital infrastructures, with spending set to reach $1.87 billion by 2018. Managing security of networks and wireless communication systems, as well as defending IT infrastructure from external virus attacks and internal compatibility threats is a top priority.

SMi's 3rd annual Oil and Gas Cyber Security Conference and Exhibition, taking place on 25-26 November in London, will address the most pressing cyber security issues facing the oil and gas sector with key presentations delivered by senior industry figures from Maersk Oil, Petroleum Development Oman and GDF Suez. The two-day programme will build on the success of the 2012 event and discuss recent efforts to bolster protection of highly valuable intellectual property and commercially sensitive information on production, exploration plans and assets.

Speaker Panel includes:    •      Claudio Lo Cicero, Head of Global Information Security, Maersk Oil    •     Fathiya Al Farsi, Head, IM&T Risk Management, Petroleum Development Oman    •     Phil Jones, Security and Resilience Manager, GDF Suez    •     Annemarie Zielstra, Director International Relations Cyber Resilience, TNO    •     Auke Huistra, Project manager National Roadmap to Secure Process Control Systems and Lead Workforce Development Thematic Group ICS and Smart Grids, ERNCIP    •     Geir Arild Engh-Hellesvik, Senior Manager, Technology Risk Services, BDO Norway    •     Andrea Rigoni, Director General, GCSEC Global Cyber Security Center    •     Edward Hamilton, Head of Threat and Vulnerability Management, PricewaterhouseCoopers To view the full speaker line-up and complete two-day programme, visit http://www.smi-online.co.uk/2013cyber-security88.asp.

Plus, don't miss the post-conference workshop on: Collaboration in industrial cyber security: a key aspect of CIIP | 27th November 2013, London, UK | Led by Samuel Linares, Director, CCI This informative workshop will explain how the collaboration in industrial cyber security improves the overall security of critical information infrastructures. We will look at descriptions of the industrial cyber security landscape, the problems to be faced, and proposed solutions. This half-day event will address cyber security issues and how the end user should deal with them, communicating with stakeholders, regulations, the involvement of public bodies, and how objectives from different departments and organisations could become barriers to the deployment of cyber security measures.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
