About the seminar

A smarter national grid infrastructure with greater connectivity ultimately becomes more susceptible to cyber-threats and cyber-attacks.

Cyber threats exploit the complex connectivity of critical network systems, resulting in a detrimental impact to our infrastructure, significant disruption and reputational harm.

Cyber-attacks on the grid can also affect a company’s bottom line, driving up costs and impacting revenue, as well as harming an organisation’s ability to innovate to gain and retain customers.

The risk of cyber- attacks to vital infrastructure is no longer a new threat and this event will offer an overview on operational and technical strategies for large and complex networks, current think and guidance on network protection and will explore procedural management to secure the network and keep the lights on.

This event will:

  • Identify and discuss the risks and how to assess threats to protect our power infrastructure
  • Predict how industry can tackle access points’ vulnerabilities
  • Examine how best to counteract attacks on advanced smart infrastructures
  • Discuss methods in increasing network resilience
  • Identify current and developing security strategies
  • Explore the impact of SCADA and encryption of data
