Power Grid Resilience Summit

On a Mission to Create a Resilient Power System

JUST IN: The virus called Industroyer "Crash Override" targets computers that control electrical substation and circuit breakers. Our program is designed to empower utility leaders to develop solutions to urgent cyber and physical resiliency matters. U.S. President Trump signed an executive order to protect the nation from cyber threats, working with state and local governments to assess system gaps and impacts of prolonged power outages. The Power Grid Resilience summit builds on this mission from day one.

North America's power grid is vulnerable to critical attacks. Disruptions are costly and require a robust risk management system to prevent and react to physical and cyber security threats. The Fall 2017 Power Grid Resilience conference offers a reputable platform for leaders in security and disaster recovery to convene in San Diego to discuss practical solutions. Speakers represent new topic areas in cybersecurity, grid modernization and natural disaster recovery. As threats rapidly evolve, our solution providers are constantly innovating with cutting edge technologies such as shooter detection, drones and enhanced software services to accurately detect and deter concealed threats to the grid.

Join us as we focus on the aggressive push to modernize the grid, which includes methods on how to prepare for potential changes in CIP-14 regulations.
