Four authoritative speakers are preparing to address the topic of cybersecurity at hydro facilities during a free editorial webcast that will take place on April 22.

The webcast, titled Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection: What You Need to Know to Keep Your Hydro Facility Safe, is intended to address the serious concern posed by cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, such as hydroelectric power facilities and Bulk Electric System facilities.

Our impressive lineup of speakers includes:

— Andrew Dressel, Director of Compliance and Legal Counsel, Grid Subject Matter Experts

Attendees will learn about the scope of cyber threats, how they can protect their facilities, and how implementation of the new Version 5 of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Reliability Standards will affect their plants and the entire hydro industry.

The webcast, sponsored by Lockheed Martin, will take place at noon central time on April 22 and will last one hour.
