This is one of THE Cyber Security events to attend if you work in the SCADA/ICS space. SCADA is one of those ongoing concerns that face National Security and it rumbles on year-on-year. Organized by Daniel Coran, who couldn’t be a nicer guy, this event is a must-attend if you work in the niche. Industrial Control Systems and a plethora of other defensive strategies will be explored. Good luck to Daniel and the team and let us know if you attend, we’ll go ahead and drop your review to this page.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, March 3rd 2020, or created by us.
According to the latest 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 companies are well-prepared to deal with a cyber-attack.
The need to protect substations and distribution and transmission infrastructure from cyberattacks is of paramount importance to utilities, as grid SCADA and PLC grid control networks are inherently a weak link for cyber threats.
To help utilities meet this challenge, the Utility Cyber Security Forum on July 21-22, 2020 in Oklahoma City will provide a focused venue in which utility executives can network one-on-one with colleagues facing similar issues. Presentations by leading White Hat hackers, vendors, utilities and technology thought leaders will provide invaluable insight and guidance into making the network secure from cyber threats.
Building off the success of the December 2019 program, the interactive format allows for a focused, problem-solving, off-the-record Forum in which utility peers and solution providers can share insights and lessons learned.
