Event Overview:

Balancing Comprehensive Security and Grid Requirements to Minimize Vulnerabilities and Sustain Compliance

Utility Cyber Security discusses several key topics, including:

  • Review and refurbish cyber security practices to meet new challenges and promote organizational resilience
  • Coordinate operational and informational technology efforts to ensure both security and compliance
  • Understand the impacts of CIP Version 4 and Version 5 to best plan compliance efforts
  • Examine security trends at the congressional level to comprehend the direction and future of legislation
  • Upgrade SCADA security through NRECA's solutions addressing the increasing complexity of system interactions

As the Department of Homeland Security has reported, cyber security threats to the utility industry are increasing in number and sophistication. Because of this challenge, the North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) is increasing the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) regulatory requirements to ensure organizations and facilities are meeting basic standards in this area.

The conference will feature areas such as, comprehensive security program assessment, the convergence of IT and OT practices and the future of CIP Compliance. This Cyber Security & CIP Compliance conference will focus on the sharing of best practices from top utilities across the country known for successful cyber and IT security compliance programs.
