"Energy companies need to understand the cyber security risks they are facing and implement an integrated security framework of technical, procedural and managerial measures to ensure effective security".

Justin Lowe, PA cyber security expert

PA experts present at the International Cyber Security Forum for Energy and Utilities

With the Middle East being responsible for a significant part of the world’s energy supplies, together with the widespread use of interconnected networks and central control systems, it is not surprising that the region is fast becoming one of the target areas for cyber-attack. Consequently, the need to address, explore and counter future threats is paramount, as there is no time for deliberation.

The International Cyber Security Forum for Energy and Utilities in the Middle East brought together an international panel of decision makers and key cyber security experts who are leaders in the Middle East market.

Key highlights from PA speakers

Justin Lowe, PA energy cyber security expert, and a member of the Advisory Committee for the forum, presented on ‘The business need for addressing energy cyber security’. Justin explored:

  • how the rising deployment of technology in the energy sector introduces cyber security risks to our critical infrastructures

  • initiatives on a risk-based approach to adopting rapid but planned cyber security frameworks

  • best practices for business on how to respond to incidents, should they occur

  • perspectives on security improvements in both corporate IT systems and industrial systems.

Dan Haagman, PA IT risk and security expert, focused on ‘Understanding information assets, their real value and the importance of cyber education’.  Dan provided insights on:
