CYBER SECURITY - CLOSED DOOR SESSIONS

During this time frame, cyber security leaders will have a confidential space
within which to hold discussions on: current security concerns and challenges,
what strategies each are employing, sharing ideas of alternative or additional
strategies, and looking to the future of cyber security, and how to integrate
physical with cyber systems.

There will be a chairperson leading the discussion with a few prepare talking
points and questions.

No vendors will be allowed into this meeting

3:15 pm - 3:45 pm AFTERNOON TEA AND NETWORKING

3:45 pm - 4:30 pm CURATED POWER TALKS – UTILITIES AND SOLUTIONS

Utility leaders will be matched with the solution provider(s) of their choice for one-on-one meetings to discuss the unique challenges that utility is facing and the solutions that are available. Our team will work directly with both utility leaders to help them select vendors they wish to speak with in order to determine what technology, physical and cyber, that fill gaps to fulfill their security strategy.

4:30 pm - 4:45 pm CHAIRMAN’S CLOSING ADDRESS
