On a Mission to Create a Resilient Power System
DETECTION, DETERRENCE, AWARENESS & RESPONSE
North America's power grid is vulnerable to physical threats, extreme weather and of course cyber attacks. Disruptions are costly and potentially extremely dangerous and therefore require a robust risk management system to prevent and react to any threat.
With this in mind, Power Grid Resilience 2018 is designed to empower utility leaders to develop cyber and physical resiliency by offering a reputable platform for leaders in security and disaster recovery to convene in Chicago to discuss practical solutions.
Join us as we focus on the aggressive push to modernize the grid, which includes methods on how to prepare for potential changes in CIP-14 regulations.

Challenges and Requirements for Tomorrow's Electrical Power Grid
As the United States economy and society have become more reliant on the uninterrupted flow of electricity, the power grid upon which it depends for that supply has experienced deteriorating reliability. The grid loses power 285 percent more often today than in 1984. These power losses impose tens of billions of dollars of losses on American businesses each year.
Connecting Microgrids With Public-Private Partnerships To Meet Critical Needs
Moving forward with plans to address the modernization needs of the nation’s electric grid is a vast undertaking, estimated to require some $2 trillion of investment over the next two decades. Providing the electricity that has become so essential to all aspects of American business, governmental and daily life requires updating not only the infrastructure and technology.
