Abstract Number: 132

The media is awash with seemingly daily reports of more and more serious cyber-attacks. We are losing the battle with cybersecurity and will continue to in the future unless we make critical and fundamental shifts in our processes and ways of thinking about the cybersecurity problem. With cyber-attacks already at a critical level, it’s important to understand specific active threats, who’s carrying them out, and how threats pertain to petrochemical critical infrastructure in all aspects. In this presentation, Tyler Cohen Wood will discuss current and future cyber-attack vectors and vulnerabilities that you need to know now. Through this presentation, the audience will have a greater understanding of the serious cyber threats posed to critical infrastructure, and measures that can be taken to best shield themselves against both current and growing cyber threats and vulnerabilities. Wood will use her unique expertise and storytelling style to empower the audience with knowledge of real cyber-attacks being enacted today, and what can be done about them. We’ll cover the current threat landscape and the ever-looming threat horizon of corporate cyber risk. We’ll also explore how the unique challenges of securing critical infrastructure, connected devices, and A.I. affect business cybersecurity.  At the end of the presentation the audience will have a close understanding of the main threat actors, the threats themselves and how to arm their businesses against them.

Topics For Discussion:

Cyber threat landscape for the petrochemical industry
Protection of data
Tactics in the event of a breach
