Cyber-security is not just a technology issue, it’s a very real business issue which should engage all business functions. Digital is no longer the sole domain of IT and there are very real risks in allowing it to remain so: Financial, commercial, and reputational risks can also be exposed in addition to the operational risks (and plans need to be formulated to mitigate against potential problems).
Industrial Control Systems Smart City Qatar forum 2017 has been designed for those with a specific responsibility for mitigating the risks of operating safely in a digital world. The agenda has been specifically created for the Qatari market and will provide a sector-by-sector approach to future-proofing industrial and manufacturing businesses against the ever-growing cyber security threat in Qatar and the wider GCC.
The two-day event will provide a unique platform to showcase the growing cyber-threats facing operators of Industrial Control Systems and will address a wide-range of topics including protection for SCADA systems; plant control systems; engineering workstations; substation equipment; programme logic controllers (PLCs) and other smart city field control system devices.
Network with your peers, competitors and future business partners. Over 100+ attendees are expected to attend this country-specific event. This is your opportunity to understand the range of complex issues that are key to the sector’s development. New strategies and initiatives will be discussed, the evolving regulatory framework explained and relevant case studies showcased. Hear from a 20+ panel of speakers, comprising key individuals from across the transport, oil & gas, utilities, healthcare and homeland security sectors.

The ACM Interface+ Format
The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.
ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.
Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
