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