Cyber attacks on industrial control systems are on the rise, and it’s estimated that 41% of cyber attacks target the oil and gas industry.

At the 2017 IADC Drilling Onshore Conference, held on 18 May in Houston, Nina Tvedt, Area Sales Manager for Secure-NOK, explains the first steps that drilling contractors can take to improve their cybersecurity. She also highlights the importance for more onshore-based drilling contractors to participate on the subcommittee. Watch the video for more information.
