The threat of cyber-attacks on utilities is real. Atlanta and Baltimore know this all too well. Electrical grid has already been breached, and even water and sewer utilities have been attacked. This webinar is not for IT professionals. They already understand the problem. This session is for the rest of us. Whether we are making budget decisions about funding cyber security to protect our utilities, or simply deciding whether to access your work computer remotely, everyone needs to be aware of the imminent and real threats we face. We are all involved in protecting our utilities from cyber threats.

Our speakers are cyber security leaders for their utilities. They will describe what they are doing and how they communicate the threats to leadership. We will also hear from a utility that experienced a cyber-attack and the lessons learned.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the threats and the measures we can take to protect ourselves.
