Event Description

How Blockchain Could Change the Resilience, Economy, and Security of the Energy Grid

You have seen it embedded in a TV commercial. You may have heard about it at a meeting. Whether you drive a late-model vehicle, ask your refrigerator to send you a shopping list, or monitor your energy consumption on a smart meter, the Internet of Things (IoT) is part of your life. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 20 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020.

The energy sector knows this, too. After all, the IoT can be a goldmine of data about customer usage and patterns, can improve conservation efforts, and help manage the grid. It’s even a platform to buy and sell energy.

You also understand that you, and your customers, are vulnerable to attacks from the IoT that can interrupt business, cost money, and create a ripple effect that could be felt for months. This is the dark side of IoT. Many in the industry are scrambling to find a secure way to protect and harden the grid against potential attacks from IoT-connected devices. They’ve found a robust solution in Blockchain, the technology that enables bitcoin.

Will Fintech save the energy sector? Join this session with seasoned regulatory attorney Tamar Cerafici where she will explore the regulatory and technical implications of Blockchain, and its disruptive effect on the energy sector. You will also get an in-depth review of the new requirements under the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC’s) recently issued proposed cyber security standards for the electric supply chain. By attending this essential session, you will learn about this cutting edge technology and the regulatory requirements to ensure compliance, resilience, and security of your connected devices.
