Mark Baggett, Vice President, Industrial Control Systems will speak at the 4th Annual Domestic Security Alliance Council Analyst Open House Hosted by Fannie Mae and Sponsored by the Domestic Security Partnership.
He will present on: The Internet of Things in Oil & Gas Industry: The more connected you are the more unsecure you are.
Oil and gas personnel want information on their wells, calculations and more and the industry is using real-time data to monitor operations. Data is flowing in and out of multiple networks at various touch points and includes access by 3rd party users. What’s the problem with giving access to real-time information? What IT doesn’t realize is that the source of the information is considered a physical critical asset and now you are opening up that critical asset to everyone on the internet and to other connected devices. Once someone is in the network from IT – they can steal your data. In the operational technology world – they don’t steal it – they shut it down and cause damage with it.
