Partners Andy Lee and Krystal Scott will discuss the results of Jones Walker’s recently conducted third-party survey on cybersecurity in the midstream space. This survey asked one hundred twenty-five leaders (C-Suite, Legal, Risk Managers, and Technology Managers) of US-based independent midstream oil & gas companies about the planning, implementation, operation, and results of their existing cybersecurity plans. Topics that Andy and Krystal will address include: strategic planning, internal training, incident response plans, and industry collaboration. They will consider: are midstream companies prepared to respond to the rapidly changing tactics of hackers or are they overconfident that their existing plans will meet future challenges?
