Deploying the Best Technologies and Methods to Protect Critical Electric Facilities

The transmission of electricity in the United States has quickly and dramatically changed after the Metcalf incident. No longer is the electric utility industry able to decide on what is an acceptable level of risk for its critical transmission stations. Protection of electric substations and transmission control centers is more important than ever.

This presentation by expert speaker Allan Wick, CFE, CPP, PSP, PCI, CBCP, will introduce and update you on many of the newest technologies being deployed to protect electric transmission control centers and substations, and distill down to the major technologies that should be deployed. It will cover security topics such as substation surveillance, monitoring, intrusion detection, and the shielding and protection of a station's most critical components to satisfy the standard equipment.
