Event Description

Keep Hackers out of Your Clients’ Business

In 2015, more than a quarter million people in Ukraine lost power on a cold December night, victims of a cyber-attack from Russian hackers. In 2016, an army of DVRs, refrigerators, and baby monitors caused a series of digital denial of service blackouts. In 2017, a group known as Dragonfly infiltrated U.S. nuclear power plants’ systems using a simple email invitation to a New Year’s Eve party.

Fast forward to February 2018: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has updated an interpretive release updating guidance on public company disclosure and other obligations concerning cybersecurity matters. This guidance summarizes basic disclosure for companies, and dovetails with requirements in the Cyber Security Act of 2017.

Trojan horse attacks, malicious emails, and infiltration through the Internet of Things (IoT) all strike fear into the heart of even the most hardened grid manager. The reality is that energy utilities—and the companies that work with and support them—must understand and prepare for “invasion” on all operation levels.

Join this session with seasoned environmental and energy attorney Tamar Cerafici as she navigates this new world of cyber threats, and the disclosures your energy business may need to make under the new guidance. She will address NERC regulations and federal agency focus on supply chain security—and how far compliance efforts must go. Tamar will discuss which technologies are vulnerable right now and how to tell whether you’re in the crosshairs of the next attack. She will also take you through strategies for defending against potential attacks and financing needed improvements in cyber defense. By the end of the session, you’ll understand distributed energy resources and how to build defenses at the edge of the grid.

Essentially, this session is designed to teach you the new language of cyber security. You’ll gain unique knowledge of the state of the IoT, understand how your clients are vulnerable to threats, and develop a strategy for meeting the new requirements for effectively managing utilities.

Session Highlights

  • The latest NERC CIP requirements for supply chain cyber security
  • How to build the business case for improving clients’ cyber security responses
  • About the threats and vulnerabilities in the current system of delivering energy and monitoring its use
  • Cyber security lingo, including terms like “edge of grid,” “Distributed Energy Resources,” “IoT,” and “blockchain”
  • The increasing role of regulators in determining the adequacy of your clients’ response
  • The potential liabilities for any failures to manage your connection to the IoT
