Topic:

Challenges and Opportunities with Power Infrastructure Cybersecurity

The Industrial Internet and smartgrid technology are creating unique opportunities for automation and efficiencies. To accomplish this, significant instrumentation is needed to collect and aggregate data from energy infrastructure components.  The interconnects that make this possible also offer a vector for cyber exploitation of the infrastructure. This talk will explore a number of recent major hacks against energy infrastructure, national policies and trends in cybersecurity, and new technologies that could provide remediation to the increased risks.
