Event Overview

2nd Annual Power Grid Resilience

In an era of sever weather, unprecedented physical threats and unrelenting cyber incursions, increased pressure and focus on the resilience of the US power grid has become the norm. US utilities face a web of state and federal compliance frameworks, public pressure on everything from rate spikes to terrorist threats to emergency preparedness, and a critical need to replace aging infrastructure while ensuring a robust, resilient and secure grid. 

Utilities need to prioritise the right projects that will protect critical assets from sabotage, theft and terrorism, prevent disruption to customers, increase public confidence in their service, restore service swiftly after an outage and maintain/prepare for compliance with current and future regulatory standards.

Power Grid Resilience 2015 will gather utility executives, regulatory bodies, and industry providers to take a deep dive into the security strategies, innovative technologies and immediate implementation of near-term and relatively low-cost steps to make our grid significantly more resilient. This event offers an unprecedented opportunity for industry providers to share their capabilities with the most active audience in the market. The event also delivers "here's how-to-do-it" methodologies to help you implement, manage and lead incident prevention & recovery efforts in your utility.

At the event, visitors will gain insights gleaned from in-depth research about today's newest physical security measures and remote monitoring of substations technologies and also will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the Director of the SAFETY Act from DHS to discuss anti-terrorism strategies, tactics and technologies.

National Security & Resilience Conference 2016

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats

National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.

The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.

The importance of organisational resilience

Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.

To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.

The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
