Cybersecurity and its Impact on Critical Infrastructure
A blackout — whether it’s caused by natural disasters or external forces — can last hours, days, or weeks and affect millions of people. Without standby generators or other alternative backup systems, refrigeration, light, and running water are not available and financial transactions can’t be made electronically. As medical and food supplies dwindle, law and order are tested.
During this discussion, the audience will learn what happens as a cyberattack on the electrical grid unfolds. The dialogue will include identifying problems and solutions to keep hackers out of the critical infrastructures that power the digital society. Electric utility grids are more vulnerable than ever to hacking and disrupting energy flow.
So if the utility grid becomes compromised, how will the critical infrastructure that supports companies and operations across the globe maintain availability?
- Assess your critical power needs to ensure the most imperative equipment is safeguarded and operational if a grid attack were to occur.
- Identify internal processes to effectively manage a critical event such as a cyberattack.
- Discuss the importance of priority load shedding.
- Partner with IT to ensure the network and IT systems are constantly monitored, hardened, and up to the latest standards to prevent hacking.
