As many know, the cybersecurity risks to the energy sector are very real and the obstacles to mitigation are challenging to overcome. At the EnergySec summit, we aim to bring together vendors; utility owners and operators; speakers; and other interested stakeholders who have a common goal to help in the maturation cycle of security in this sector.
This year's summit will include a compliance track and a technical track. We will also be hosting the Energy CISO Forum and the National Electric Sector Cybersecurity Organization (NESCO) Town Hall meeting. The Energy CISO forum is by special invite only and is reserved for senior security leaders currently working at a utility. If you'd like to be considered for participation in this forum, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone is highly encouraged to participate in the open discussion NESCO Town Hall meeting. The discussion topic for the town hall is - Security Legislation: Building the Bridge Between the Possible and the Practical.
