ADDRESSING RISING CYBER AND INFRASTRUCTURE VULNERABILITIES OF CRITICAL OIL AND GAS ASSETS

In today’s fast changing, smarter energy landscape, safeguarding oil and gas infrastructure requires the adoption and implementation of evolving company cultures and the encouragement of progressive mind and skillsets.

Understanding the importance of continued workforce reeducation, plus industry wide endorsement and uptake of international standards and regulatory frameworks. With evolving threats and increased interconnectivity, cyber security has moved up a gear in the c-level management agenda. Preventive or reactive cyber security strategies? Which path are CISOs travelling and what are the early emerging trends and results?

OVERCOMING COGNITIVE BIASES: CULTURAL PATTERNS, BIASES & THEIR IMPACT ON INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY

While inclusion and diversity is the number one priority on everyone’s agenda, reports suggest very little progress has been made; not just in the oil and gas sector but across all industries globally. One of the major reasons for lack of progress is unacknowledged and unintended cultural biases, and even the most developed economies and work cultures have reported of cultural bias.

  • What are cultural biases, and how are they recognised? How can we overcome these biases within the business?
  • Cognizance of bias: looking for blind spots in leadership decisions that cause hindrance in advancing the inclusion and diversity initiatives within the business
  • Evaluating hiring, mentoring and retaining of employees with special needs: a long road for the oil and gas industry
  • Creating the workplace of the future: driving growth and collaboration through generational and cultural differences through powerful inclusion and diversity initiatives
