The 8th annual Cyber Security for Critical Assets Summit is set in a hyperconnected world where the drive of the 4th industrial revolution continues to accelerate forward. As a result, organisations are digitally transforming their operations and processes, increasing business risks and presenting new opportunities for attackers to penetrate critical assets and infrastructure.

COVID-19 also presents new challenges for cyber security leaders across the globe. Attackers are exploiting unprecedented levels of uncertainty, change in circumstances and shifts in processes, increasing both the likelihood and impact of cyber-attacks across a number of critical industry verticals including: Energy, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Power, Chemical, Water & Healthcare.

Now more than ever, the skills, techniques and processes for securing both digital and physical assets must evolve quickly in order to continue to safeguard critical assets and infrastructure. With this in mind, the CS4CA summit brings together 100’s of IT & OT security leaders from across Europe’s critical infrastructures, for 2-days of in-depth knowledge exchange, strategy planning and insight building.
