We can validate the quality of events organized by SmartGrid – these folks have placed a ton of events on our directory and we’ve heard great things about their conferences. If you work in the ICS space then you should really consider attending this SCADA Conference. The practice of defending supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) networks, a popular structure of control systems used in industrial operations, is known as SCADA protection. Millions of people depend on these networks for automatic control and remote human operation of vital resources and utilities like water, natural gas, electricity, and transportation. They can also be used to increase the efficiencies and efficiency of less relevant (but still important!) real-world processes like factory production and traffic signalling. SCADA is a form of industrial control device that is widely used (ICS).

Webinar: 16:00-17:00 CET
Wednesday 28th April 2021
The past year has seen a sharp rise in cyberattacks against the power grid, with sophisticated social engineering tactics being leveraged by cybercriminals to open new doorways into the grid.
This 60-minute webinar deep-dives into the lessons learned from the most recent cyberattacks on the power grid, providing insights into how cybercrime groups are evolving, re-organizing, and honing their skills to enable higher-stakes activities.
Through a series of presentations and panel discussions, we predict the nature of the attacks on the horizon for complex IT and OT converged infrastructures, and we quantify the risk facing the grid in the next 2-3 years. Finally, we identify the organizational, workforce, and technical strategies urgently required to strengthen your cybersecurity posture and enable you to get ahead, and stay ahead, of the threat.
By getting to know your adversary inside out, and being able to predict their every move, power grid cybersecurity teams and their engineering colleagues stand a much better chance of building and maintaining infrastructure that is both secure-by-design and adaptive to the demands of a more malicious threat landscape.
