Physical-Cyber Security Convergence to Safeguard the Grid from Complex Threats

Tuesday, December 6th

100% Online

Brian Harrell, director at Navigant, will present during this webinar. To schedule a meeting, Please Contact Us.

Learn about protecting the electric grid and associated critical assets and systems from both cyber and physical attacks during Physical-Cyber Security Convergence to Safeguard the Grid from Complex Threats. This webinar focuses on the IT-OT-Physical Security Convergence and how it can enable capabilities that the Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) can leverage to detect, identify, and then respond to unfolding incidents. Uncover new technologies that will deliver a common operating platform for security practitioners that features predictive risk analytics and machine learning to detect anomalies and respond a lot faster to complex threats from multiple sources that combine cyber and physical threats.

Attendees will learn:

  • What are the known threats to the power grid in North America and how can a utility’s security department better mitigate risk?
  • What current technologies are utilities using to deter, detect, and delay physical threats to their corporate, transmission, and generation sites?
  • Why are utilities spending more and more on security and compliance and yet the number of incidents continue to grow?
  • How can you identify, isolate, and respond to complex threats that extend beyond just the cyber domain?
  • Is it possible to consolidate alerts and events on a single super dashboard? Will that help me categorize alerts and help reduce false positives?
  • Can I leverage predictive risk analytics to connect the dots faster to address unfolding incidents that could lead to operational disruption?
