"What's the Deal?" 21st Century Energy Conference

This week I had the honor to be invited as the afternoon keynote at the annual energy conference sponsored by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) in Cromwell, CT.  The title of my speech was Critical Infrastructure Protection & Industrial Cybersecurity -- The Electric Grid as a Model.

Overall this is a daunting topic but one that is on many individual's minds -- especially in such states as Connecticut where their critical infrastructure was hit pretty hard by Super Storm Sandy and also where they are actively deploying microgrids in the state to improve grid resiliency.

The agenda for the meeting and copies of the presentations are at this link.  Also, photos from the event are at this link

Lastly, many thanks to the organizers to allow me to represent Securicon at this event and to educate the audience on the many issues associated with electric grid cyber and physical security.
