Agenda Day 3

8:00 am - 9:00 am REGISTRATION AND COFFEE

9:00 am - 9:15 am CHAIRMAN’S OPENING ADDRESS

Mary C. Doswell, retired SVP Dominion Energy Solutions, Dominion Resources

9:15 am - 10:00 am KEYNOTE ADDRESS: THE CHANGING FACE OF THE ELECTRIC GRID: MODERNIZING OUR ELECTRICITY NETWORKS IN A WORLD INCREASINGLY DEPENDENT ON ELECTRICITY

• Modernizing by becoming much more flexible, integrated, and new digital technologies and innovation
• Integrating renewable generation into our fuel generation mix
• Utilizing distributed energy resources and energy storage to provide new services like electric vehicle demands
• Adapting our networks for the future using new communication protocols, sensors, AI and accompanying new challenges and opportunities

Terron Hill, director of electric network strategy, National Grid

10:00 am - 10:45 am PANEL DISCUSSION - WORKING WITH REGULATORS: GRID SECURITY NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE

• What programs do regulators have in place to help utilities mitigate future attacks or to assist with response and recovery post-attack?
• Utilities want to share security information, but how can utilities engage with regulators without fear of compliance?
• Beyond standards and compliance, what are the industry best practices for physical and cybersecurity that utilities should consider implementing to maximize
response and minimize costs?
• Can the current CIP Standards mitigate emerging threats or do we need to apply additional risk management principals to utility security programs?

2:30 pm - 3:15 pm PARALLEL TRACK BREAKOUT SESSIONS: PHYSICAL SECURITY AND CYBER SECURITY

PHYSICAL SECURITY - UTILITY LEADERS CLOSED DOOR SESSIONS:
In this time period, utility companies will have a private space within which to
hold confidential discussions focused on physical security, including current
security concerns and challenges, what strategies each are employing,
sharing ideas of alternative or additional strategies, and looking to the future
of physical security.
There will be a chairperson leading the discussion with a few prepare talking
points and questions.
No sponsors will be allowed into this meeting.

CYBER SECURITY - CONNECTING CONNECTING CYBER AND PHYSICAL SECURITY AT HYDRO-QUEBEC
• Reviewing a case study about Hydro-Quebec’s security department
creates synergies between cyber and physical security
• Establishing incident management strategies and partnerships
• Understanding the importance of cyber in physical security projects and
how innovations helped in achieving security objectives

Yan Cameron, Director Physical Security, Hydro Quebec

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 VIP 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 fulfil their security strategy.
