About this event

Join us for an online discussion on the state of the art in power grid cybersecurity.

Abstract:

The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) reports that a large number of cyber-attacks occur on cyber-physical systems for which a computer and ancillary sensors are used to control the infrastructure. An industrial control system strategy is required to improve grid resiliency, secure operations and better manage potential cyber risks.

Panel Topics:

  • Ideas to secure the transmission grid, distribution networks, and the supply chain (including hardware, firmware and software),
  • Benefits of unifying state cybersecurity protocols, and
  • The role of cyber education and workforce development in helping secure operations against cyber threats.

Registration for the event is free. Registrants will be given access to a Zoom webinar link.
