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.
The need to protect substations and distribution and transmission infrastructure from cyber attacks 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 offers 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 threat.
Building off the success of the spring 2019 program, the roundtable format allows for a focused, problem-solving, off-the-record Forum in which utility peers and solution providers can share insights and lessons learned.
