The risk of cyber and or physical attack is ever present for our industry and both have the potential to put our people, processes and property in danger.

An overview of the global threats in existing and emerging E&P markets forms part of this panel, which will examine trends and developments to offshore operations worldwide.  

There is a multitude of risks and dangers from terrorism, war, corruption, piracy and maritime crime. 

How, where and when these attacks could happen will be explored in this session, which will also offer advice on how best to protect the workforce, assets and infrastructure from physical and cyber threats.
