The International Conference of Doble Clients is the world’s premier conference for the electric power industry, addressing the industry’s critical issues through education, discussion and collaboration. This conference brings together power industry experts such as Mr. Jones, to discuss pressing topics impacting the future of the industry.
“Grid security professionals have a near impossible job, and that job is getting exponentially harder with Grid Transformation initiatives. Cyber-attacks continue to hit not only our main utility operations and new grid technologies, but also their associated partners and contractors, as a means to penetrate the primary facilities,” said Jones. “We need to safeguard the entire chain-of-operations with new techniques that enable the good-guys to stay a step ahead of the bad.”
Jones’ presentation will be held on Monday, April 9, 7:30 AM, and will discuss how utilities must pursue a more strategic transformation to achieve the agility needed to address both the changing threats and emerging Grid Edge technologies that are expanding the utility’s vulnerabilities. Actions being taken today are significant and unsustainable, but unfortunately are still insufficient. Jones will highlight a pathway forward that addresses these challenges and reduces the risk and compliance burdens for the utility.
