Cyber security is a growing issue in the oil & gas sector since critical operational technologies (OT) in production sites, which used to be kept isolated, are now connected to IT and the cyber space. The trend is towards remote operations, remote maintenance and tighter inter-operability with centralized process data and plant information. Old and outdated installations are at particular risk and require dedicated mitigations. The focus of this workshop will be on understanding of the situation in oil & gas and how to get started with best practices, such as the new DNV GL RP-G108 (Cyber security in the oil and gas industry based on IEC 62443) as well as the ISO 27000 series on information security.
- Understand the context of cyber security and the situation in oil & gas, with consequences of increased digitalization and how the industry is exposed to cyber threats.
- How to deal with cyber security in oil & gas. Introduction to the main principles of the new DNV GL RP-G108 and relevant parts of the ISO 27000 series.
- Practical examples and related discussions where participants are invited to bring in their own cases, problems and concerns.
Engineers and managers involved in digitalization, development and operation of oil & gas facilities, representing owner/operators, system integrators (EPCs) and system vendors.
