Panel Outline


The oil & gas industry, which is one of the largest segments of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is facing increasingly growing security challenges as the pace of technological advancement is accelerated. All layers of security: data storage, physical access and network connectivity, represent some of the primary concerns of the Industrial IoT ecosystem.  The use of sensors and actuators in the field, the security of data and application workflows, and the safety of pipelines, ships and ports, are some of the unique IIoT security challenges facing the petroleum industry.


Our panel features some of the Houston-area most prominent security and policy experts, who will highlight the challenges associated with IIoT security.  The panel will address some of the existing solutions and policies in place, as well as existing gaps and opportunities for new solutions to be created and deployed and for companies to create and leverage new technologies and intellectual property. 


LES USA-Canada is holding its Spring meeting during April 26-28, 2016 in Houston TX, and this panel is part of that conference.  This panel is organized by the IoT committee of the LES High Tech Sector, and will be moderated by the committee's Chair, Ms. Efrat Kasznik.  Ms. Kasznik is President of Foresight Valuation Group, a Silicon-Valley based IP strategy and valuation consulting firm, as well as a Lecturer on IP at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
