Please join us for an all-day conference addressing strategies and trends in cyber risk and cybersecurity for the nation's energy infrastructure.

The Obama administration, Congress, and federal regulators continue to increase their focus on cyber risks to U.S. energy infrastructure. At the same time, businesses themselves have sought to increase the resistance of the energy sector to cyber attacks through voluntary public-private partnerships and similar nonregulatory efforts.

strategies for addressing those risks, and the many upcoming policy choices and challenges facing the industry and the nation. Topics addressed during the conference will include:

  • Perspectives on U.S. cyber innovation
  • Cybersecurity, defense, and NERC compliance
  • Public-private partnerships and nonregulatory efforts to improve infrastructure resilience
  • Understanding and detecting threats to the security of the bulk electric system
