Event: Guarding the grid
How vulnerable is the North American power grid to cyberattacks? Join Passcode and panel experts via live stream on May 12 to explore that question.
Please join us on Thursday, May 12 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. for a panel discussion with a group of prominent cybersecurity experts.
Protecting the power grid from today's cyber threats has become one of the nation's top national security priorities. Nowhere was this more evident than in the aftermath of the cyberattack in Ukraine that left more than 200,000 customers in the dark. The hack – the first known cyberattack to successfully knock a power grid offline – caused many in the US to wonder: How vulnerable is the North American power grid to such an attack?
We've gathered experts to look closely at how hackers pulled off the Ukraine hack, whether we are prepared for similar attacks, and how industry and government are partnering to safeguard the US power supply.
