The power industry relies on technology to perform – if security is compromised, the repercussions are significant. Networks, applications, IT infrastructures, data and T&D systems are all at risk of accidental or purposeful damage. From scheduling and recording the generation and transmission of electricity to keeping customer credit card information, there are many potential points of vulnerability for data or technology security breaches. Power industry companies need to be on their guard against disgruntled employees, hobby hackers, virus writers, criminal groups, foreign intelligence services, corporate espionage, outages, acts of god, terrorism or information warfare.

Attend CBI’s timely “Electronic Security for the Electric Power Industry” conference to gain insights on the key challenges facing utilities when implementing electronic security practices, namely; making the business case for security investments, strengthening SCADA systems, securing web applications and protecting networks, applications, data and physical locations.

Speakers from AEP, IDACORP/Idaho Power, EnCana Corporation, BC Hydro, Ontario Power Generation, SRP, CAISO, NERC, the National Infrastructure Protection Center, FBI InfraGard and the DOE’s Office of Energy Assurance, among others, discuss the challenges of electronically protecting one of the nation’s most critical infrastructures.
