Sources at FC Business Intelligence state that between 2010 and 2015 cumulative investment in the cyber security sector of the utility industry will top €15bn. Added to this global expenditure on oil and gas infrastructure security in 2011 is set to reach €19bn.
FC Business Intelligence’s Energy & Utility Cyber Security Summit is gathering together lead decision makers from internationally renowned Energy & Utility companies including Shell, E-ON, EDF, Iberdrola and more to develop cyber security best practice guidelines to certify the security and reliability of your infrastructure and information assets.
The event organizers have extended the available space and are able to offer a €200 discount to anyone who registers this week – simply quote PR200 when registering.
The control system and utility cyber security market is at a crucial tipping point. If a real progress is to be made and a successful return on the €10trillion investment into modernizing European critical infrastructure is to be seen the following challenges need addressing:
- The National and Pan European policies and initiatives driving this industry forward
- The need for the certification of products and solution providers
- The relationship of the control system and IT worlds
- Understanding the potential threat and how to mitigate risk
- Enhancing awareness in order to enhance your system resiliency
The two-day business-focused conference will bring together over 120 leaders of the energy & utility sector with the most innovative cyber security solution providers. E-On, EDF, Shell, Iberdrola, Elia, Alliander, Brabant Water and many more will discuss their control system, smart grid and SCADA cyber security strategies.
“The inaugural conference was a success bringing industry regulators, companies and vendors together for lively discussion and experience sharing.” Aldo Nevarez, KEMA
“The information provided at this conference is valuable to anyone interested in keeping the lights on.” Terry Jarrett, Missouri Public Service Commission
