Protecting America's Energy Through Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity

The energy industry is under attack.

Learn how to fight back. Data from a 2012 Mandiant survey show that the energy industry, including oil and natural gas, is ranked 2nd highest of all industries most likely to suffer a cyber attack. And it’s not just intellectual property hacks either. It’s ALL cyber incidents from ALL sources. 

Join us at the 10th Annual API Cybersecurity Conference & Expo and discover methods for thwarting the bad guys, what the scene looks like over the horizon and how the latest technologies can help you counter cyber espionage, address cyber warfare, and make your cyber efforts secure.
