Utility Cybersecurity In the Time of COVID-19 (webinar)

With an increasing number of employees subject to telework, America’s utilities are assessing the cyber security implications of COVID-19. In addition to reinforcing their cyber hygiene practices, they are orienting threat awareness to new attack vectors and considering the implications of social distancing in their incident response strategies. The Energy Technology and Governance Program (ETAG) of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and USEA, in cooperation with the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), invite you to join cyber security executives from America’s leading utilities as they discuss COVID-19 related threats and actions they are taking to protect America’s electric grid.
