Upcoming Webcast
Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part Three: Security for IIoT
While the plant engineering sector is an important consumer of industrial cybersecurity hardware, software and services, capital expenditure has been curtailed in the oil and gas sector by the decline in oil prices and the related plunge in oil company revenues. In spite of this situation, regulation and the threat of further legislation have served to support the case for investment. In a strategically critical sector, the oil and gas infrastructure should be one of the most secure; however, many of its systems are poorly protected against cyber threats.

One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET.
