OilComm Adds ExxonMobil, Noble Energy Speakers to IT/OT Panel
The OilComm and FleetComm Conference will welcome Andrew Taylor, Supervisor, Cyber Security Vulnerability Testing and Management Team, ExxonMobil and Rob Nolan, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of Noble Energy as special guest speakers on its opening day panel session “Viable, Affordable and Successful IT/OT Convergence Strategies” taking place on Wednesday, October 3.
NCC Group Technical Director Damon Small will lead the group discussion on how to overcome the unexpected challenges related to breaking down silos and help promote efficient collaboration between Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) teams. For many years, the idea of integrating IT and OT processes has presented the oil and gas industry with a list of technical, logistical, and security challenges. However, now that standards have matured, and IP devices on Industrial IoT networks have flourished, integrating IT and OT has become an affordable, feasible, and essentially critical transformation for the industry.
The OilComm and FleetComm conference will take place October 3 – 4, 2018 at the Houston Marriott Westchase in Houston, Texas. For more information on how to register for this event, visit the OilComm / FleetComm Event website.
