OIPA, Alias Forensics to host Lunch & Learn on cyber security threats facing the oil and gas industry

October 10, 2017
Here are the facts: Cyber terrorists are after your information. Just ask any of the estimated 143 million Americans whose personal information was exposed in the infamous Equifax breach that took place mid-May through July of this year and allowed hackers to access people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some instances, driver’s license numbers.

Hackers were also able to steal about 209,000 credit card numbers and 182,000 documents with personal identifying information.

To help our members combat the rising cyber security threat facing our industry, OIPA Partner Alias Forensics, with the help of FBI Special Agent Richard Lay, will host a free Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, Oct. 17, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the OIPA offices, 500 N.E. 4th Street in Oklahoma City.

The event will discuss current cyber issues threatening the oil and gas industry and what your business can do to better combat them.

Additional topics to be discussed include:
• Examples of real-life attacks and scams currently targeting the oil and gas industry.
• Real-world data breach incident examples and case studies.
• Emerging industry best practices for being proactive against these types of threats.

To RSVP for this free Lunch and Learn, contact OIPA Partners Program Manager Phil Browder at pbrowder@oipa.com.
