Doors open to European Smart Grid Cyber Security 2017 on the 21st March

SMi will proudly host the 7th annual European Smart Grid Cyber Security in two weeks on the 21st and 22nd March 2017. The two-day conference will take place at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London UK.

With over 50 confirmed attendees from over the globe, 17 high level industry presentations and an interactive post-conference workshop, European Smart Grid Cyber Security 2017 presents itself as an unmissable event of the year.

European Smart Grid Cyber Security 2017 offers a unique opportunity to network with senior experts in cyber security from government, utilities, TSOs, regulators, solution providers, security consultants, senior engineers and more. With greater concerns from utility companies and their consumers over privacy and advancement of cyber threats, bridging the gap between the customer and the utility grid industry has never been more vital to successful Smart Grid Cyber Security.

Attendees will hear from a range of European utility companies present what their strategic programmes are doing regarding cyber security. As well as discuss how communication issues between IT and OT departments can be overcome and learn how to make your company compliant.

The 2017 show will bring back lively debates and industry updates to London, offering the best platform for delegates to stay in touch with the latest developments in this market. With a global representative from Belgium; Brazil; Sweden; Germany; Italy; Latvia; Norway; Netherland; UK and USA, the two-day conference has been crafted to help utility companies to enhance control on their smart grid.

The event agenda also includes a post-conference workshop hosted by Toreon CVBA and ONRIX gcv on "Setting up defence in-depth". The workshop will provide a wider understanding of setting up a defence-in-depth for ICS to counter the multitude of potential attack vectors. Defence mechanisms that should be ascribed to technology, processes and humans will be reviewed. The workshop will include a scenario based cyber-attack game to expand the understanding of attack vectors.
Attend the workshop to understand the defence-in-depth principle, understand cyber-attack vectors, apply assurance of ICS availability and integrity, respond to cyber incidents, and think like a hacker.
