The IEEE Smart Grid Cybersecurity Workshop is an annual forum where industry leaders, subject matters experts, and practitioners come together to address the security challenges facing the power industry. For the first time, this year’s event will include The Smart Grid Cybersecurity Village a combination vendor exhibition and Red Team/Blue Team Exercise.  From practitioners and engineers to regulators and vendors, this fast-paced workshop has something for everyone. The purpose of this annual Workshop is to:

  • offer a forum for networking and sharing the latest information on management practices, risks, mitigation strategies, and technologies;
  • provide a benchmarking mechanism to assess and call attention to the progress the industry is making; and
  • explore the best path forward in all topic areas and identify security hurdles limiting the transition to a safer, greener, more resilient power grid.

The workshop is colocated and held directly after the NERC Committee meetings on Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIPC).
