Public Power Threat Briefing

The latest threats to public power security and mitigation strategies to reduce risk.
February 22, 2023

As the electric sector has experienced a string of prominent cyber and physical incidents, public power utilities are reexamining their security posture. Break through the headlines and get an honest briefing on the reality of the current threat landscape – for both utilities and state and local governments – and learn about the latest tools and strategies for public power. Representatives from the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center and Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center will each provide a threat briefing and discuss mitigation strategies for the sector.

Please note that registration for this briefing is restricted to public power providers (including utilities and joint action agencies) and will be held at the Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) AMBER level. Recipients may only share TLP: AMBER information with members of their own organization, and with clients or customers who need to know the information to protect themselves or prevent further harm. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has more TLP guidance and information.
