This week, I am joining top thought leaders at the DOE Cybersecurity and Technology Innovation conference to discuss the future of OT and critical infrastructure. With this year’s event focusing on “Leveraging Innovation to Meet Future Challenges,” I am excited to connect with others who are addressing the technology and cybersecurity questions of today and tomorrow.
As enterprises continue to adjust to the new hybrid workplace environment, we must put an increasing emphasis on strengthening industry relationships, expanding upon cybersecurity, and driving innovation to provide development opportunities and promote a diverse workforce. I’m looking forward to joining influential leaders from the fields of cyber, IT, innovation, privacy and records management, advanced data analytics, operational technology, risk management, energy sector resilience and more to do just that. Join me during two key sessions:
A Cybersecure Future for OT Infrastructure
Tuesday, June 14, 2022 3:55 p.m. – 4:40 p.m.
During this panel session, I will join other industry leaders to explore how operational technology is evolving and what we can do to ensure the availability of this technology with ever-increasing cybersecurity threats. Co-panelists include Andy Bochman, Idaho National Lab; Marty Edwards, Tenable; Jordan Henry, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; and Michael Thompson, MITRE.
Safeguarding U.S. Critical Infrastructure from Persistent, Sophisticated Attacks
Thursday, June 16, 2022 10:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
In this panel discussion, we will be sharing insights on how to address the need for increased security investment and sector-specific focus to deflect cybercriminal attacks. I will be joined by co-panelists including Gary Dodd, Bonneville Power Administration; Ben Miller, Dragos; Robert Tafoya, Juniper Networks; and David White, Axio.
A year after the Colonial Pipeline attack demonstrated the havok a cyberattack could wreak on daily life, it’s more important than ever that we encourage cross-industry collaboration – including organizations across public and private sectors – to advance IT, innovation, and cybersecurity within the government and energy sector. Drawing upon my experience with cybersecurity architectures and frameworks in government, commercial, and critical industries/infrastructure, I am honored to have the opportunity to share best practices and lessons learned with event attendees.
The DOE Cybersecurity and Technology Innovation conference is being held June 13-16 in Portland, Oregon. If you’re interested in learning more, reach out and I’m happy to connect!
