Utility Week Cyber Security & Resilience Conference
Building on its successful launch in 2019, the 2020 Utility Week Cyber Security and Resilience Conference equips IS, risk, resilience, security and OT leaders with the insight to prepare and protect infrastructure, services and customers from growing cyber threats.
28th October 2019 by Networks
The critical national infrastructure the utilities operate is a prime target for unscrupulous hackers and cyber criminals. The impact of a breach is vast, with estimates of the immediate economic impact of a significant cyber-attack on a UK regional electricity distribution network being as high as £86 billion.
As such, it is imperative that energy and water utilities effectively manage these risks, and ensure their networks and systems are safe.
Join us to weigh in on the debate, hear innovative case studies, and network with key stakeholders, enabling you to have a robust strategy in place to manage the inevitable threat and ensure that safety and operations will be seamlessly maintained.
