Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s 2015 Grid Security Conference – the fifth annual gathering of cyber and physical security experts dedicated to the evaluation of emerging BES security trends, policies, and lessons learned. It was attended by over 350 industry and government executives in a three day session last month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The intense focus on the security of the energy infrastructure shows no sign of slowing. If anything, the findings from incidents that take place over the next year or more may lead FERC to call for further updates to the CIP standards.
