Very pleased to have SAIC join the ranks of authoritative solution providers to support and contribute to the European Smart Grid Cyber Security Forum. I met with Gilbert Sorebo, Chief Cybersecurity Technologist , after last years sell out event, and had the pleasure of riding a busy London tube with him. Not only did we get to have a great catch up on what's happening in the US, but also a great opportunity to reflect on finally having a European platform for all to create a common voice.
In March 2012, SAIC will be joining us again - providing another brilliant presentation to our audience entitled "Smart Grid Security: A look to the future". This session will look at the future of Security for the Smart Grid as distributed generation, cyber for plug in Vehicles (Blogger note: Big question! How are end users, utilities and infrastructure providers going to meet this challenge-? The entire EV automative market is moving far quicker than the utilities are in developing infrastructure to meet demand-comments? ) as well as Distributed energy technology challenges, evolving threats, cascading failure modes and more..
Gilbert was kind enough to comment on why SAIC are supporting this event, stating "The Forum offers a unique opportunity for SAIC to help European utilitiesunderstand the importance of Smart Grid security and the solutions that are available."
Gilbert has recently co-authored a book on Smart Grid security that will be released in December in case any of the attendees would be interested - Contact us we would be happy to help you find a copy - Jamison Nesbitt, Business Development Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
