November 12-13, 2014 • Arlington, VA

Site: Hilton Crystal City at Ronald Reagan National Airport
Address: 2399 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22204 (view map)

The American Public Power Association’s Grid Security Summit is designed to educate decision makers and utility leaders on important policy, legal, and economic issues surrounding cyber and physical security of the electric grid. The program is designed for policymakers, general managers, general counsel, and public communications personnel.

The electric utility industry’s main goal each and every day is to keep the lights on. Prevention of physical and cyber attacks on the grid is of highest priority. The electric utility industry is the only critical infrastructure sector that is subject to mandatory federal cybersecurity and reliability standards. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is about to release new physical security standards as well.

The American Public Power Association’s Grid Security Summit will shed light on how electric utilities can comply with standards, continuously upgrade security measures to protect the grid against evolving threats, and employ sophisticated techniques to allow the grid to recover quickly should an attack occur. The summit will educate decision makers and utility leaders on important policy, legal, and economic issues surrounding cyber and physical security of the electric grid.

Evan Wolff will be speak at a session entitled "Electric Utility Industry Outlook."
