Cybersecurity is a hot topic, but it is probably the hottest topic that can’t be discussed much. Even with the secretive nature of cybersecurity, this session will pull back the curtain to provide a glimpse into the current and future state of cybersecurity for North American utilities.

  • Who will be making strategic and day-to-day decisions about cybersecurity? 
  • Which technologies will have the highest demand for security?
