According to a recent study made by KPMG, almost half (49%) of utility and power CEOs surveyed say that becoming a victim of a cyber attack is now a case of ‘when’, and not anymore ‘if’. Despite this, only half (51%) say that their companies are well-prepared to deal with a cyber-attack. There is a 32% reported cybersecurity incidents were related to the energy industry in the fiscal year 2014, according to the US Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Computer Emergency Response Team. In light of sustained cybersecurity threats from a range of sources, utilities must work to guarantee their networks and critical control infrastructure are best positioned to deal with significant attack events when they occur.
The Utility Cyber Security Forum 2019, organized by the Smart Grid Observer, is an in-depth information-sharing event intended for cybersecurity utility strategists, executives, and practitioners. Key technology advances, regulatory requirements, and success strategies for effectively dealing with cybersecurity threats will be explored through a series of presentations and panel discussions. Ample time is reserved for one-on-one meetings with industry thought leaders and executives who are at the forefront of utility cybersecurity advances.
