Welcome to Energy Intrusion Detection 2019
The 1st annual Energy Intrusion Detection 2019 took place 29-31 January 2019 in Amsterdam. This end-user driven, implementation focused conference drew together 60+ cybersecurity specialists from electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution operators across Europe to discuss the evaluation, procurement, and implementation of these crucial monitoring systems.
This event followed the recent adoption of the NIS directive, which mandates increased cybersecurity development – particularly for operators of critical infrastructure. The three-day programme, put together following extensive research with 30+ European electric utilities, provided a clear roadmap for DSOs, TSOs, and Generators to upgrade the security of their OT environments and support compliance with the new regulations. The event featured technical case studies covering issues including the specification of IDS functionality, implementation and configuration in specific utility architectures and ecosystems, development of the SOC, and organisational transformation to meet the demands of OT/IT convergence.
Programme format included:
- Case-study driven conference programme
- IDS Solution Testing tutorial
- Technology innovation panel discussions
- Roundtable breakout sessions
- Networking evening reception
- Exhibition area displaying 10+ suppliers
- Live demo labs of the latest tools and technologies
