3rd Next Generation Cyber Security for Utilities

Date: 13th February 2019 - 14th February 2019 Location: Denver - Colorado - USA

ACI’s 3rd Next Generation Cyber Security for Utilities

With the value of damages caused by cyber-attacks growing rapidly every year, adopting a new and comprehensive approach to cyber security for utilities is more important than ever. Among essential facilities that feel this pressure, few feel it more than our utilities. Cyber incidents have the potential to bring regional economic growth to a grinding halt, especially when they target the lifeblood of our modern civilizations. With threats becoming more sophisticated and gaining better resources, security professionals must continue to adapt and develop their methods of defense and response to ensure the uninterrupted production of our power.
