The 15-part Cybersecurity and Digitalization webinar series was launched in June 2020 to educate utilities on cyber standards, trends, and best practices. The series reached over 4,200 participants from 70 utilities in 68 different countries. Following the success of the webinar series, USEA and USAID hosted industry panels with leading cybersecurity experts to discuss the latest cybersecurity trends, tools, and technologies.

The webinar series and panels will be the foundation for the Business Innovation Partnership (BIP) that will convene a global network of utility thought leaders to assist USAID-partner utilities to navigate some of the most pressing challenges within a rapidly changing industry.
