Amid increasing attacks on corporate electronic data infrastructures and intensifying physical security dangers spawned by recent terrorist threats, the nation’s power utilities are being driven to establish heightened security awareness and integrated security procedures. Federal regulatory pressures have since ensued, stemming from proposed Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) SMD NoPR mandates requiring physical and electronic security of mission critical cyber assets. The power industry relies on critical infrastructure to perform reliably — if electronic or physical security is compromised, the monetary and physical repercussions can be catastrophic. Key questions that will be answered are:

-What actions have forward-thinking organizations taken since 9-11 for securing the energy infrastructure?
-What is the state of security today?
-What needs to be done to secure the energy grid beyond the FERC proposed regulations that makes sense in terms of acceptable risks and cost?

Attend CBI’s timely conference “Integrate Utility Electronic and Physical Security,” June 12-13, 2003 in Chicago, IL. to gain insight into pending FERC SMD NoPR regulations, perspective on why industry regulation is needed and discover strategic solutions to improve electronic and physical security awareness and procedures.

PLUS, choose from two comprehensive pre-conference workshops on Thursday, June 12, 2003:
A) SCADA SYSTEM SECURITY — Examine SCADA Architecture to Determine System Strengths and Correct Weaknesses

B) DISASTER RECOVERY — Prepare Mitigation Strategies, Vulnerability Assessments and Emergency Response Plans

Join an outstanding group of industry professionals at the only independent forum where utility executives get the information they need to make informed judgments on post-9/11 electronic and physical security procedures.
