9th Annual API Cybersecurity Conference & Expo

Cybersecurity is critical to the infrastructure of the oil and natural gas industry. Sophisticated attacks have redefined the security reality for the energy sector, and oil and gas security professionals must come together to learn and network with industry experts.

This conference is organized by API to provide an opportunity to network with cybersecurity professionals, and to candidly share ideas and to discuss the challenges facing the industry. These sessions, essential to cybersecurity, are chosen and presented by recognized experts in the field.

The energy industry is under attack. 

Learn how to fight back. Data from a 2012 Mandiant survey show that the energy industry, including oil and natural gas, is ranked 2nd highest of all industries most likely to suffer a cyber attack.

And it’s not just intellectual property hacks either. It’s ALL cyber incidents from ALL sources.

Join us at the 9th Annual API Cybersecurity Conference & Expo and discover methods for thwarting the bad guys, what the scene looks like over the horizon and how the latest technologies can help you counter cyber espionage, address cyber warfare, and make your cyber efforts secure.
