9th Cyber & SCADA Security for Power and Utilities 2022 gathers IT/OT security professionals from leading Power & utility companies to benchmark best practices in securing critical infrastructure and navigating the ever-changing cyber-threat landscape.
With the increasing digitization and proliferation of integrated technologies, the utilities industry has become increasingly exposed to cybersecurity threats. More & more cyberattacks are being reported annually by energy companies. Legacy OT systems designed without security in mind, and a lack of cybersecurity culture and awareness need to be addressed to secure critical infrastructure. Bolstering security and risk mitigation remain a serious challenge today and utility stakeholders can’t avoid taking a commitment to cybersecurity to the front seat. One simply cannot afford to be out of the loop and underestimate vulnerabilities & risks that can await right around the corner.
Apart from advanced solutions & protection technologies available and constantly upgraded in the market, utilities also need to deploy the proper organization, to enhance awareness culture and ensure the security of its IT and OT systems is on the top of the agenda by their company leaders.
