CYBER SECURITY FOR OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

CYBER SECURITY FOR OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

24 - 25 AUGUST 2020, MANILA, PHILIPPINES

About The Course

The electricity grid is a key part of a country’s critical infrastructure. But as networks become smarter, they also become more vulnerable to cyber attacks – making energy cyber security a hot topic for electricity utilities. With compliance regulations and cyber incidents increasing, we will bridge the gap between traditional IT security and the world of electricity utilities to help utilities meet their operation resilience requirements.

 

Cyber security is a huge and evolving challenge. To date, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has identified around 60,000 cyber vulnerabilities and new threats are discovered every day. Any one of these could allow sophisticated hackers or disgruntled employees to disrupt the energy supply or access confidential data.

 

PowerEDGE combines traditional IT security expertise with a deep understanding of the electricity utility environment to help you minimise these risks. Our in-depth advice and support helps you deploy an effective defence-in-depth strategy based on efficient methodologies that go beyond standard firewalls and passwords. We can also help you develop and implement proper testing to ensure your cyber security measures are adequate and up to date.

Key Learnings

  • Overview of cyber security in operational technology domain
  • Overview of different cyber threats and attack vectors

Hydrogen as a fuel has outstanding energy carrying capacity and many application possibilities ranging from Petroleum refinery, Ammonia and Methanol production, Transportation and Power generation. Although the current petrochemical market segment will remain strongest in the near future, it is the transport and power sector which spurs the vision of a massive market takeoff in the next decade. The ever-rising share of renewable energies require flexible and scalable storage solutions, which in turn offers many additional revenue streams beyond pure electricity sales. Adding to this the strong impetus towards decarbonisation of the transport sector from cars, trucks, trains to ships and even airplanes creates the breed for an exciting and yet untapped market potential. This course aims to clarify and assess the hydrogen business case along its value chain and versatile market applications.
