Power Grid Resilience 2018 Conference

26 March, 2018 - 28 March, 2018, Chicago, IL, United States

On a Mission to Create a Resilient Power System


North America's power grid is vulnerable to physical threats, extreme weather and of course cyber attacks. Disruptions are costly and potentially extremely dangerous and therefore require a robust risk management system to prevent and react to any threat.  

With this in mind, Power Grid Resilience 2018 is designed to empower utility leaders to develop cyber and physical resiliency by offering a reputable platform for leaders in security and disaster recovery to convene in Chicago to discuss practical solutions.

Join us as we focus on the aggressive push to modernize the grid, which includes methods on how to prepare for potential changes in CIP-14 regulations.
