Zenitel talks cybersecurity at Tekna seminar

Tekna, a Norwegian union for graduate technical and scientific professionals, held a seminar yesterday in Stavanger, Norway. The topic was digitalization and IT security within the Norwegian Oil and Gas Industry. This one-day Tekna seminar targeted decision makers and specialists who want to take part in the digital evolution of this industry.

Tom-André Tarlebø, Zenitel's Commercial Product Manager for Oil and Gas / Industrial, was invited by Tekna.as a featured seminar speaker. His presentation covered everything from safety vs. functionality and cyber threats to protection mechanisms and best practices.

Industry leader in cybersecurity and IP communications

Zenitel has a long-standing commitment to cybersecurity, and we have earned the reputation as the most flexible, reliable and advanced communication systems available.

Our Vingtor-Stentofon Critical Communication over IP (CCoIP®) employs VoIP technology, but takes it an important step further by adding new IP services and applications to integrate capabilities for security, quality and reliability, as required in critical situations. As a leading provider in CCoIP, Zenitel is the proven and preferred audio and data communication choice for challenging environments including Oil and Gas that require reliable communication and management of critical activities.

Of his invitation to speak at the seminar, Tarlebø says, "We are honored and humbled Tekna asked us to contribute to this important conversation. Cybersecurity has been left, in large part, to individual companies and projects to solve. Centralized guidelines for each industry are a great step forward - to ensure both better overall protection and better interoperability between systems. We look forward to taking an active part in the conversation on IT security in critical communication within the Oil and Gas industry and beyond."

In addition to Tarlebø’s presentation, Zenitel was also represented by Tor Kristian Lystad, Senior Vice President for Sales & General Manager for Oil & Gas/ Industry, and Martin Helleland, Managing Director of the Zenitel-owned company, Nor Electronics. Helleland serves on the program committee, which planned and managed the whole seminar.
