The rising cyber risks in the energy sector

This webcast describes how the latest trends and issues in cyber security could impact your business's critical information and processes.

19 June 2014, 11:00AM - 12:00PM, HKST

Energy and natural resources (ENR) companies are challenged by an ever-growing array of threats and opportunities that grow more complex every day.


Challenges include: entering more and more remote regions in the world to search for natural resources, often in fragile countries where the state is weak and the environment is under threat; labor relations may be fraught with tension in some parts of the world; ever-changing regulatory and compliance pressures; financial and production risks; and public opinion is often hostile to ENR companies. However, technology is creating immense opportunities to develop oil and gas fields, in previously unconquerable areas.
