Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
In-demand presenters, five-star accommodations, world-class entertainment and pro-level golf all nestled under the picturesque skies of Texas’ hill country mark just some of the highlights of this year’s EnergySec 10th Anniversary Security Summit in cooperation with The Anfield Group and the SANS Institute.
Ten years in the making, the 5-day event includes SANS Critical Security Controls training, valuable CIP workshops and presentations from some of the industry’s most knowledgeable and prolific security professionals. All this will take place at the Omni Barton Creek Resort in Austin, TX from Aug. 18-22. A special discounted room rate is available at this luxury hotel for summit attendees.
“Promoting new ideas, programs and solutions that support improving cyber and physical security of the energy sector is our goal” said Steve Parker, EnergySec President. “This summit is the place to be to learn and network with the people who can help make a significant difference - for you and your organization. Whether it is technical industrial control system security knowledge you seek or a better way to address the NERC CIP standards, you won’t find a more inviting event in North America.”
To kick things off, we are honored to welcome Congressman Michael T. McCaul as keynote speaker. With his experience as Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and his High Tech leadership background, the Texas congressman’s message is sure to be especially informative and inspiring.
