Public Power Threat Briefing Series

The latest threats to public power security and mitigation strategies to reduce risk.
October 10 - 26, 2023
2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern

To recognize National Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October, APPA has partnered with the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) and Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) to bring a threat briefing to the public power community. 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.

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.

Who Should Attend

Registration is limited to personnel from public power utilities, joint action agencies, and regional/state public power associations. Individuals involved in utility security are encouraged to attend, including CEOs/general managers, chief information security officers, chief technology officers, chief information officers, cybersecurity personnel, and IT personnel.
