Media Alert: “Is Cyber Espionage a growing threat to the Energy Sector?”

Jamal Elmellas from Auriga and David Halsey from Enzen Global will be tackling cyber crime at IFSEC Safe Cities 2014

 
PRLog - Jun. 11, 2014 - CENTRAL, U.K. -- What: Speaker session examining whether the Energy sector is at risk from Cyber Espionage and how this risk can be mitigated due to be held at IFSEC Safe Cities Academy and Exhibition (http://www.ifsec.co.uk/Content/Safe-Cities-Exhibition-and-Conference) at ExCel from 17-19 June 2014

Who:Jamal Elmellas (http://www.ifsec.co.uk/page.cfm/Action=Visitor/VisitorID=2794), Technical Director at Auriga, and David Halsey, Head of Transmission and Distribution for Enzen Global Ltd, will co-present a session and participate in a panel debate.

Jamal Elmellas manages and oversees the technical administration of complex projects, and business strategy, assisting the Auriga implementation team with all aspects of security architecture. In addition to his familiarity with compliance standards and security architecture, Jamal also specialises in the transition of traditional based infrastructures into virtualised environments.

David Halsey develops the energy/utility aspects and explores new opportunities for Enzen. David was a senior civil servant at Defra’s Rural Payments Agency and a senior executive at the National Grid where he oversaw substantial asset infrastructure and change management in the UK and internationally. He played a key role as Network Director leading four Gas Distribution Networks of which three were sold to an international consortia in 2005.

Why:Hackers for hire and the NSA PRISM debacle suggest cyber espionage is on the increase in the energy sector. But how does the sector compare to other industries? What successful strategies can be replicated? What are the unique challenges? Is it possible to implement security that can mitigate risk and improve efficiency? This session will look at the main issues and provide energy sector suppliers with pragmatic security advice.

Who should attend: IT, utility and security press
