Forum to Focus on Cyber Security Advances for North America Utilities
Dealing with advanced persistent threats on utilities and the electric grid will be a key focus of the April 5-6 event in San Diego
The Energy Cyber Security Forum, April 5-6, 2022 in San Diego, organized by the Smart Grid Observer, will offer a unique venue for utility professionals to network one-on-one with colleagues and share insights regarding cyber security best practices and lessons learned. The very latest technology advances will be examined in depth with an eye toward what works, what doesn't, and how utilities can best move forward in the current environment.
"As the grid becomes more decentralized, it presents more potential entry points for cyber attack," says Daniel Coran, program manager for the Forum. "This Forum is designed to help utilities zero in on these threats and implement the best, most cost-effective strategies for alleviating these vulnerabilities."
Cyber security experts from the following organizations will be participating:
Topics to be covered include:
