All submissions will be carefully considered, but preference is given to speakers currently employed at energy industry asset owners. Speaking opportunities exist in three general categories as listed below:


Plenary Session Panels (Days 2-3)                                                                                                                        

A moderator along with 3 panelists will examine and discuss an issue related to security or compliance in the energy sector. Panel topics will be determined as part of this Call for Speakers. Submitters may propose a complete panel package (topic, moderator, and panelists), a panel topic only, or simply request placement on an appropriate panel based on their background and experience.


Plenary Session Presentations (Days 2-3)                                                  

We have several speaking opportunities (generally 30-minutes, but can vary) available for presentations related to security or compliance in the energy sector. We welcome submittals from any interested party, but note that presentations designed primarily to promote a company’s services, capabilities, or products will not be approved via the Call for Speakers. However, a limited number of sponsored speaking slots are available.


Breakout Sessions (Day 1)                                                 

Breakout sessions are designed to provide a deeper look at issues in one of three areas of focus. Session details are listed below.


Presentation Formats:


Lightning Talks (15 minutes)

Lightning talks are a great option for first-time or less experienced speakers. Gain experience and confidence in a small group session while sharing valuable information with your peers. These are also a great way to share quick-hit tips or lessons learned in your day-to-day work.


Presentations (30-60 minutes)

Full-length presentations provide more detailed discussions on relevant topics in any of the three breakout tracks listed below.


Workshops (60-90 minutes)

Workshops provide time for a deeper and more interactive treatment of key issues. These are facilitated, interactive discussions on problems, challenges, or proposed solutions.


Topics of Interest


We will consider a broad range of topics relevant to cyber security in the energy sector. The topics below are of particular interest, but we will entertain other compelling proposals as well.


Emerging Risks: What new threats, vulnerabilities, or technologies should utilities be considering with respect to security?


Compliance and the Cloud: With cloud technology now in mainstream use, what are utilities and regulators doing to address security and compliance concerns?


Are We There Yet?: The CIP standards are now more than a decade old, and industry security efforts are entering their 3rd decade. What progress has been made, and what is left to do?


11:00 o’clock and all’s…: Most large utilities have built or are building 24x7 SOCs. What benefits and challenges to these bring? What lessons can be shared from successful efforts?


Do You Know Where That’s Been?: The 1st round of Supply Chain standards take effect on July 1st. What are utilities doing to address the requirements and the underlying risk in other areas of their operations.


Rise of the Machines: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Security Automation, and more. Are smarter systems supporting security schemes or will it all come back to bite us?


New Kids on the Block: Case studies on new security tools that are making a difference.


Right of Boom: Briefings on findings and lessons learned from security incidents within the industry.
