Main stage   -Critical Infrastructure Al Ain J Concourse 1 above Al Multaqua PANEL: Digital Security & Industry 4.0’s race to NetZero Al Ain J Concourse 1 above Al Multaqua - Al Ain J Concourse 1 above Al Multaqua The IEA (International Energy Association) recent report mentions that cybersecurity could pose a greater risk to electricity security, as systems incorporate more digitalised monitoring and controls in a growing number of power plants, electricity network assets and storage facilities. Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things ( IIoT ) are underpinning the greater connectivity and data sharing; hackers are gaining more entry points, due to multiple smart device endpoints, they can now easily choose the attack vectors they can use to exploit systems. Net zero requires closer monitoring of asset, which in turn demands smarter remote equipment and tighter integration.
