The vision of the future Smart Grid involves an unprecedented transformation of our current electrical industry, with the introduction and integration of an intelligent communications architecture.

While the benefits of carbon reduction, reliability and controlled consumption remain firm drivers to support this change, the vulnerability and threat profile associated with the business model remain a critical priority.

CYBER Security is of the upmost concern internationally across all defence and critical national infrastructure industries. The deployment and vision of the smart grid is not only incredible in realising our abilities to reduce climate change but also pose a real threat from terrorism and online hacking. Privacy is not security, but is an equally important issue to smart grid integrity. Much needs to be worked out to ensure privacy breaches don’t expose consumers to malicious attacks, fraud or other invasive practices. Privacy and integrity are paramount to the success of the Smart Grid, as such we will focus on education, process improvements, and better operational security, addressing: Privacy breeches, malicious attack, fraud, Metering, data management, analytics, control consumption patterns and monitoring, PII, privacy policies, buying and selling models, cloud based solutions and other invasive practices.

SMi’s Smart Grid Cyber Security and Privacy Forum will address the threat landscape of cyber attacks, as well as privacy, integrity, and security of data involving Smart Grid technology. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage, network, and understand how the industry intends on responsibly developing and deploying our future global infrastructure.
