Day Zero (Pre-Conference Work Shops) News from Smart Grid Security East

The conference hasn't started yet, but it's been a great day here in Knoxville nevertheless, as 3 concurrent workshops are keeping all the early birds busy:
  • AMI Security
  • Control System Security
While most attendees are getting deep immersion in these subjects from 10 am - 5 pm today, with my short attention span and desire to get the broadest impression, I've jumped from session to session to session. In addition to getting some valuable updates to what's going on in these three domains, I'm getting to put faces to names of people only met online before.

Tomorrow the conference kicks off for real with opening remarks from Enernex's Erich Gunther and a NIST 7628 update from Marianne Swanson and Daniel Thanos.

FYI: Have been doing a little tweeting using the #smartgridsecurityeast tag and plan to continue tomorrow. HERE's the official site for the conference. Stay tuned for more ...
