Cyberattacks have the potential to devastate entire companies, thus, cybersecurity has quickly become a major corporate concern. IADC has actively pursued the development of cybersecurity solutions and guidelines as they relate to drilling assets for nearly four years. The Association has focused on developing best practices based on existing standards to assist drilling companies as they build cybersecurity into industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) systems across the industry value chain.

This workshop is intended to serve as a forum for drillers, operators, and the service sector to discuss potential cyber-attack on both land and offshore drilling assets, and to discuss how to protect, detect and respond to the cyber-attacks. The workshop will be organized as a red team and blue team interactive exercise where participants will be divided into groups to collaborate on: (1) tabletop execution of cyber-attacks (act as the attacker) and (2) develop response actions (act as the responder). Some of the groups will focus on land rigs, while other groups will focus on offshore rigs.

Please make your reservation for this one-day workshop today as seating is limited – first-come, first-served.

If you have any questions or require assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Siv Hilde Houmb at sivhoumb@securenok.com or Melissa Mejias at melissa.mejias@iadc.org.
