comprised of top executives, government officials, and other
subject-matter experts:

  • Cybersecurity:
    Small Investment, Big Impact (11 am – 12 pm)
    No utility
    is immune from a cyber attack and you need to shore up your defenses –
    but that does not require a big budget and resources. Explore
    practical, cost-effective approaches to cybersecurity that can produce
    significant results. See how one public power utility is leveraging
    the city’s IT to build cybersecurity into electric utility operations.
    Learn about the Neighborhood
    program, a collaborative threat detection and intelligence
    platform that gives small utilities access to industrial control
    system threat analytics and insights. In this presentation, Lee will
    be joined by Scott Smith, Division Manager – Communications of Bryan
    Texas Utilities.
  • Threat
    Alert: Cybersecurity for Leaders (1:30 pm – 2:30 pm)
    A survey
    by The Conference Board
    shows that U.S. CEOs rank cybersecurity as
    their #1 external concern for 2019. Public power is no exception and
    executives of small and large utilities are paying increased attention
    to building cyber defenses. Join other public power leaders for a
    briefing on cybersecurity threats – see what’s new, what’s evolving,
    and what should be keeping you up at night. Hear from a panel of CEOs
    on public power’s cyber readiness and what you can do to develop a
    culture of cybersecurity.
