Cyber Security 2017

Take this opportunity to participate in the most relevant conference on a very hot issue!

With fresh experiences on our norwegian politicians being hacked, the subject of this conference is of great importance and relevance.

Speculations on whether the precidential elections in the US was influenced by foreign forces commiting computational  criminal acts has not yet been concluded, and this illustrates how this subject has to be adressed in a number of ways.  This conference focus on the technical and security challenges connected to the growing cyber activity.

Threat actors are more sophisticated, with more detailed knowledge not only about critical and proprietary control system components, but also about the actual physical process that is being controlled. Some threat actors are also increasingly able to demonstrate that they have access to extensive skills, financial backing and resources.

Norwegian businesses depend on the ability to implement strategies to improve cyber security urgently in an ongoing process. Cyber security attacks on industrial automation and control systems can in the worst case have physical consequences. The industry is meeting the new challenges when critical systems that were isolated before are now connected to networks, possibly also to the Internet.

This NFA conference focuses on cyber security in critical infrastructure internationally as well as the status for cyber security in the oil and gas industry. Leading standards that apply today and are under development will also be presented along with how the standards are being applied within different corporations’ governance frameworks and procedures. Transport and land-based industry, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are also important topics.


Participate in this conference and hear leading international as well as norwegian speakers tell about experiences, challenges and proven solutions to this ever more important discipline.
