Duct Tape Won't Fix It: Before Cyber Attacks Target and Degrade The Grid, What Preparations Should Your Company Make?

Monday, December 09, 2013
6:00 AM-6:00 AM CST

The April 2011 tornado made our community aware of the dramatic impact a blackout can have. Differences between paths to reduce a company’s exposure to cyber risks are widening; the responsibilities and risks identified in various privacy laws, the Cybersecurity Framework, and the NERC cybersecurity taskforce are not the same. Cybersecurity and cyberattack recovery should include planning for grid access loss, but “back to normal” periods are unlikely to be the same for every location or every purpose.

Does your cyberattack response plan take these into account? Does your dependence on electrical service include planning for various types of possible local, regional, or national responses to a grid attack or deficient grid attack recovery?

Roland L. Trope is especially well-placed to understand these changes, the national security concerns, the cybersecurity liability issues, and the emerging requirements and standards which our community’s business enterprises face.

Bring your questions and concerns, and join us for lunch on December 9th. Seating is limited and by invitation only.
