Staying a Step Ahead of Increasingly-Sophisticated Cyber Threats

By [email protected] - 14th January 2019 - 12:50

ACI’s 3rd Next Generation Cyber Security for Utilities will take place on 13th & 14th February in Denver, CO.

With the value of damages caused by cyber-attacks growing rapidly every year, adopting a new and comprehensive approach to cyber security for utilities is more important than ever. Among essential facilities that feel this pressure, few feel it more than our utilities. Cyber incidents have the potential to bring regional economic growth to a grinding halt, especially when they target the lifeblood of our modern civilizations. With threats becoming more sophisticated and gaining better resources, security professionals must continue to adapt and develop their methods of defense and response to ensure the uninterrupted production of our power.
