Securing Smart Grid and Smart Metering infrastructure

We will be hosting our 2nd annual conference on Telecoms for Smart Grids in London this September 24th and 25th I want to bring this to your attention as Security specialists as this is will surely be of interest to you. We will be addressing what communications architecture is best suited for Smart Grid and Metering deployments. There is a lot of debate on this topic, but all agree it must be A) Secure B) Flexible C) Scalable D) Reliable Are hybrid networks the way forward, public or private networks? With the DCC contract bidding taking place in in the UK and many Telco's and Utilities in Europe working together on Smart City and EV infrastructure, this event has gone from strength to strength with indepth case studies from Utilities and vendors alike. Dont miss this. Most security specialists I have worked with on our Cyber events see this event as crucial, and if your a vendor you will want to know where your products are best suited to secure these networks. The convergence of Telecoms and Utilities will be a unique transformation, and it will be interesting to hear from Deutshce Telecom, RWE, DECC, EON, Enel and more on their work. We are also working with the most prominent and respected Associations in the UK and Europe - Smart Grid Great Britain , Energy Networks Association and ESNA.
