While cybercrime is steadily increasing in the U.S., organisations are held back from strengthening their protection and reaction strategies; perceiving cybersecurity as overwhelmingly complex. But ultimately, even the most advanced cyber threats can be broken down and mitigated – and this is the mission of CS4CA USA 2019, returning for the 7th consecutive year to Houston in March 26th-28th 2019.
The Cyber Security for Critical Assets Summit unites 250+ senior IT & OT security professionals to elucidate the most advanced cybersecurity information, debate policies and guidelines, and collaborate to protect America’s critical industries: Oil & Gas, Energy, Renewables, Chemical, Utilities, Mining, Water, Power, and Maritime.
2019’s agenda includes: real-life case studies, focus groups, panel discussions, roundtables, 6+ hs of structured networking, and specialised IT & OT streams as well as plenary sessions addressing common challenges. The third day features an exclusive case-study-based workshop to those who dare asking ‘why are critical infrastructure assets so easy to attack?’ and ‘how would we cope if internet and telecommunications outages lasted for days?’
To guarantee that the most relevant and up-to-date topics are addressed in a solutions-oriented manner, CS4CA USA is curated in partnership with a steering committee of industry experts and speakers, including: Diana Kelley, CTO at Microsoft,Victor Atkins, director of the Cyber Intelligence Division at the U.S. Department of Energy Lauren Goodwin, VP of Digital Transformation at BP Brian Harrell, appointed by president Donald Trump to lead the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
