  • Digital Oilfield Wellsite Automation – What You Need to Know Now
    Digital Oilfield Wellsite Automation – What You Need to Know Now
    Chirag Rathi, Consulting Director, Energy & Environment, Frost & Sullivan Recorded: Jul 11 2019 29 mins
    The Oil & Gas industry is going through a costly war, and the weapon of choice is innovation for all operators. Wellsite operation is a key area of CAPEX and OPEX and also one of the most workforce-intensive. However, wellsite operations are quickly evolving as operators embrace the “digital oilfield age.” New technologies such as the Internet of Things/Internet of Everything, predictive analytics, cloud, and profit insights from Big Data are provided operational efficiency opportunities but offer a new set of challenges as well.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Gain insight into the top operational pain points and how they are driving investment priorities.
    • Learn about process control technology advances, including surveillance, analysis, and optimization, and how the Oil & Gas industry can benefit
    • Identify innovation that can easily be leveraged to improve wellsite automation
  • Operational Technology - Building Cyber Resilience
    Operational Technology - Building Cyber Resilience
    Mirel Sehic - Global Director Cybersecurity and Adam Green - ANZ Cybersecurity Leader Recorded: Jul 9 2019 47 mins
    Historically Operational Technology (OT) systems have been kept separated, and having this disconnect had been considered a good security measure, however this is often no longer operationally feasible in today's connected world, and a lack of real-time visibility and monitoring of OT environments can have the opposite effect. Across all industries, including smart cities, connected buildings, and critical infrastructure, there is a rise of connectivity, smart devices, and analytics to deliver additional insights, essential cost savings and operational efficiencies. This evolution will continue to be embraced as organisations seek out increased efficiencies and compete in a more global landscape, which makes it important that Cybersecurity across the entire organisation, including OT, is a built-in consideration, and not a blocker to innovation.

    Join us to learn from our experts how you can improve your organisations OT cyber strategy, prevent potential gaps and develop a mindset of continuous cyber improvement.

  • Digital Solutions to Optimise District Energy Systems
    Digital Solutions to Optimise District Energy Systems
    Heather Ramsden Recorded: Jun 24 2019 64 mins
    In 2015 UN member countries adopted the so-called Paris Agreement at COP21, setting the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees C compared to pre-industrial levels, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees C. To reach that goal, greenhouse gas emissions must become net zero by 2050. This will require significant changes in our energy systems. However, since the Agreement it has become apparent that in many countries, including the UK, there is a gap between commitment and actual policies to guide the market in the direction of energy efficiency solutions like DEN.

    The Top Three Challenges Facing Online Gaming Regulators
    Jon Bruford Recorded: Dec 5 2018 62 mins
    It was once said that online gaming cannot be effectively regulated. Since then, many jurisdictions around the world have shown this statement to be false. In fact, the introduction of legalized online gaming in European member states over the last decade or more as well as the recent expansion of legalized online gaming in several US States, have shown that online gaming technology provides operators with the ability to protect the interests of the customer more effectively than may be the case in the terrestrial industry. Having said that, the introduction of legalized online gaming has not been without its challenges. Different socio-economic, political and cultural landscapes have posed unique challenges to regulators around the world. During this webinar, we will look at how regulators in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA have responded to these challenges.
