Cyberattacks have the potential to devastate entire companies, thus, cybersecurity has quickly become a major corporate concern. IADC has actively pursued the development of cybersecurity solutions and guidelines as they relate to drilling assets for nearly four years. The Association has focused on developing best practices based on existing standards to assist drilling companies as they build cybersecurity into industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) systems across the industry value chain. This workshop is intended to serve as a forum for drillers, operators, and the service sector to discuss cybersecurity standards, best practices, and the influence of cybersecurity on automation. The workshop will also examine the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, ISA/IEC 62443, the two existing IADC cybersecurity guidelines (“IADC Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Cybersecurity Risks to Drilling Assets” and “IADC Guidelines for Baseline Cybersecurity for Drilling Assets”), current IADC initiatives, and will look ahead to the necessity of future efforts.
