Cyber Senate 4th Annual Summit set to help critical national infrastructure deal with cyber threats

4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Summit will bring together security experts with national asset owners
The 4th annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Summit is set to take place in London in later this year.
Taking place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington, on 19th-20th September 2017, the event will bring together experts from all over the world to discuss how to keep critical national infrastructure – such as Water, Utilities, Oil and Gas, Nuclear, Power Generation and the Smart Grid Energy and Transport sector–secure from cyber threats.
The event will occur against the context of continued evolving cyber attacks against critical infrastructure globally, including attacks against energy firms and infrastructures such as the Ukraine Power Industry, the German Steel Plant and the Water Dam of New York City.
Bringing together stakeholders from a range of critical industries with security professionals, the issues discussed will include public/private partnerships, security planning, incident response, supply chain and 3rd party risk, security operations centre development, risk management, the integration of cyber security and safety, IT and OT convergence, the importance of cyber culture, information sharing and how the industry are addressing the skills gap.
Supported by the US ICS-ISAC and moderated by Chairman Chris Blask, speakers include the Head of Cyber Security Operations, Sellafield Ltd, Head of Civil Nuclear Cyber Security, BEIS, Security Case and Strategy Development Manager, EDF Energy, Lead Solutions Architect, Electricity North West, ICS Security Expert Leidos, and more to be announced.
Attendees will include some of the energy industry’s leading end-users from operational and IT backgrounds, government influencers, leading cyber security authorities and some of the world’s most influential security solution providers.
Discussing the event, James Nesbitt, Founder of organiser the Cyber Senate said: “With new threats emerging all the time, all stakeholders have a responsibility in ensuring the safety, reliability and stability of the critical national infrastructure that enables our countries to function and prosper.
“This event will look at all areas where critical infrastructure and cyber security intersect and discuss how industry leaders can manage cyber risks in their organisation by ensuring supply chain security, developing appropriate security measures in specification, operation and design and incorporating good security practices throughout the ICS lifecycle.
“The importance of this issue cannot be underestimated and the nature of the threats against organisations are ever changing. We hope that this event will provide all attendees with an excellent grounding in areas of vulnerability, how to detect threats and how to plan in order to mitigate risk for these essential national assets.”
ICS-ISAC Chair, Chris Blask states “The mission of information sharing involves many stakeholders groups across the entire global community. The Cyber Senate captures key thought leaders and works to share information among them and with critical communities. We see Cyber Senate as a highly valuable organisation and are pleased to support the good work they are doing.”
