Smart Grid Forums

Phoenix Forums has been renamed Smart Grid Forums.

They collaborate with engineering experts to develop creative event concepts and high-quality programs that educate technical decision-makers and empower them to produce extraordinary results. Their strategy is purely market-driven. They keep a careful eye on industry trends. They stay one step ahead of industry developments and provide live event platforms that act as a catalyst for new ideas, new directions, and new approaches to achieving future energy security through their regular, rigorous, and unbiased process of in-depth interviews with TSOs, DSOs, power generators, engineering consultancies, and technology innovators.

is a set of standards that provide power grid operators a solid foundation for managing and mitigating security flaws in their industrial control systems. Implementing IEC 62443 is now everyone’s duty, and power grid operators, technology vendors, and system integrators must all fully understand and accept it in order to reap the full advantages.

IEC 64243 Week 2022

This week-long seminar covers IEC 62443 ideas, frameworks, and controls in depth, as well as an accurate portrayal of cybersecurity risk to operations. The Fundamentals of IEC 62443 course on the first day of the event helps attendees understand the standard’s key building blocks and how they may be implemented in their local environments. The main conference lasts three days and includes case studies of actual uses of the standard in combination with ISO 27001 in a variety of power grid contexts. The seminar concludes with a cutting-edge briefing on how to use the standard to create offensive cybersecurity initiatives in the OT environment.

Power grid cybersecurity leaders will be equipped and prepared to adopt IEC 62443 as part of their broader security management system, to work more systematically and cost-effectively to minimize their security risks, and to more easily achieve their security goals by the end of this week-long event.

IEC 61850 Week 2022

Smart Grid Forums will host three 5-day conferences for the smart grid community in 2022, each focusing on a key standard: CIM for operational systems, IEC 62443 for cybersecurity, and IEC 61850 for substations. Each conference will have a pre-conference training day, a three-day utility-driven conference and exhibition, and a post-conference deep-dive briefing on a futuristic element of the subject.

Each of these conferences will do comprehensive audience research to guarantee that the program information is presented in a timely, relevant, and fair manner.

Cyber-Attribution & Deterrence 2022

The number of cyber-attacks against the power system has increased dramatically in the last two years, with no change in the rates of attribution and prosecution; and now with the situation in Ukraine it is likely to get worse.

While power grid operators continue to invest in cybersecurity solutions, upskill their personnel, and improve their response and recovery protocols, there is a widespread belief that we will not be able to stay ahead of the danger anytime soon. Unless we design new attribution standards that are appropriate for use in cyberspace.

Representatives from DNV, the FBI, the NCSC, and RAND Europe discuss the current rules of attribution, how they need to change to ensure their efficacy in cyberspace, and how power grid operators may collaborate more closely with law enforcement to design these rules in this 60-minute webinar. We dissect the intricacies of attribution, investigate law enforcement organizations’ information-sharing activities, and look at upcoming technologies that promise greater attribution support, perhaps leading to more prosecutions and deterrence.

When power grid operators contribute more effectively to the intelligence pool, we can jointly create a social firewall that will put us ahead of the danger and keep us there for good.
