Hacking the Grid: Cyber-Espionage and Critical Infrastructure Protection
Tue, 21 February 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
As the grid becomes more connected and Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) devices proliferate, threats from cybercrime are becoming increasingly common and severe. Several stories have emerged over the past few years about highly sophisticated, innovative industrial cyberattacks. Russian hackers have shut down the Ukrainian grid, compromised utilities in the US and Ontario, and infiltrated a dam in New York. Utilities struggle to keep up with evolving critical infrastructure protection standards that don’t adequately address cybersecurity risks.
Join us for a discussion of cyberespionage and recent cyberattacks in the oil & gas and utilities sectors. Learn how cyberattacks are impacting the energy sector, how hackers target energy professionals, and what you can do to not end up on WikiLeaks. Our discussion will be led by Danny Timmins, consulting firm MNP’s National Cyber Security Leader and member of the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance Cyber Security Council.
