The North American Bulk Electric System (BES) faces an array of acute security challenges. The electric utility industry recognizes the unprecedented number of threats from ransomware, malware, supply chain vulnerabilities, and other risks. The information technology/operational technology convergence, growing reliance on cloud-based technology, and the emergence of artificial intelligence (just to name a few) are transformative changes that present our industry with new security opportunities. These are occurring even as the grid itself is undergoing a fundamental transformation by integrating new facilities and services (e.g., inverter-based resources, distributed energy resources, flexible loads, etc.), along with physical security threats that must be understood and addressed.  

Texas RE is planning a special Cyber and Physical Security Workshop to explore these multifaceted issues. The event will bring together a broad set of energy industry and governmental experts to discuss the security landscape at the state and national levels. Critical industries supporting the electricity sector such as oil and gas, as well as technology service providers, will also participate to bring multiple perspectives to the table since security is fundamentally a collective effort. Please join us for this important and exciting discussion on August 28, 2024.  

Texas RE's 2024 Cyber and Physical Security Workshop will be held on August 28, 2024, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Central. This workshop is intended for all stakeholders in the Texas Interconnection and will feature speakers from Texas RE and external entities.
