About the Event

Digital transformation has accelerated worldwide. Driven by globalization, the pandemics and an ongoing need to extract greater value from high-capex, long-term projects. This acceleration has ushered in a new, post-digital transformation reality for many industrial sectors. In this new reality, organizations in the energy sector must constantly adapt to survive. Digital transformation has been revolutionizing industrial processes, has been driving new business models and has been fostering a new organizational culture where virtual connectivity is the norm. Throughout this entire process, collecting, transmitting and processing data into actionable information has taken center stage.

However, increased reliance on data-driven, automated systems is not without risk. Recent experience illustrates that no company, industry, or critical infrastructure is safe from cyberattacks. Threats continually evolve in step with technical advances. Cybersecurity is recognized as a fundamental pillar in the protection of information, processes and project execution. Robust cybersecurity systems create a barrier between threats and production assets in the same way safety protocols protect health, safety and environment.

This virtual conference will kick off with a leadership keynote address followed by a round table discussion focused on hardening of critical infrastructures. Various subject matter experts will discuss what cybersecurity looks like in a post digital transformation world. Expert presentations and end-user case studies will address critical assets, tools and methodologies for securing and advancing the production process through automation.

Digital transformation is the new reality. Cybersecurity is the new necessity. Save the date and join Petrobras, IBP and ISA in this mission to shed light on these new challenges that urgently demand answers.
