Live Webinar: Cyber Security in Mining Operational Technology

Event Begins: 14 Sep 2017 12:30 PM   Ends: 14 Sep 2017 1:30 PM
Venue: Online

The above time is given in AEST. 

In recent years, the mining industry has embraced automation and machine-to-machine communications to improve productivity, safety and reduce costs, allowing miners to solve critical challenges and redesign day-to-day operations.

However, the modern and future nature of mining comes with unprecedented challenges surrounding the cyber security of operational technology (OT). The risk of a cyber attack on hardware and software that is used to control OT networks and critical infrastructure is a very real one. It also has the capacity to be far more damaging than traditional cyber attacks, not only causing financial losses, but also leading to outages of critical systems and processes and even the loss of life.

This webinar will feature three cyber security experts with significant experience in working with mining and METS companies to protect their critical assets from hackers who seek to exploit security weaknesses. 

Our expert speakers include:

  • Robert Di Pietro, Partner – Cyber Security, PwC
  • Chris Nelson, Business Leader – Energy and Resources, Data 61 (CSIRO)
  • Peter Clissold, Senior Cyber Security Consultant, Schneider Electric
