VPD Access – “Today’s Digital Oilfield: Dangers and Opportunities”

Air Date: Tuesday, 9 January 2018 @ 10.00 CST

Tomorrow is here today, and the digital oilfield is already impacting drilling operations in ways good and bad. This virtual panel discussion, airing 9 January, 2018, will explore the risks and benefits that can accrue from these cutting-edge technologies.

Cybersecurity is a major topic, not just for our industry, but for virtually anyone who touches the Internet. Siv Houmb, CEO of Secure-NOK, and Chair of the IADC ART Cybersecurity Subcommittee, will walk us though the real risk of a cyberattack on drilling assets, motivations behind possible attacks, regulatory initiatives, potential solutions and more.

While the bogeymen of cybervillainy are real and insidious, the upside of digital technology holds great promise for improved efficiencies. One of the most promising is blockchain, the technology behind the burgeoning global Internet currency Bitcoin. Andrew Bruce, CEO of Data Gumbo, will detail the potential for blockchain in oil and gas, including smart contracts that can remove time, expense, and mistrust.
