Subject this time will be the deployment of security controls at a US utility for two primary objectives:
- To protect itself from potential attacks coming from outside, particularly the Smart Meters and AMI network it's been standing up for customers recently
- To protect Smart Meter-enabled residential and commercial customers from potential attacks (or accidental, incorrect instructions) originating inside the utility or its systems
Please note, this will be an IBM-centric discussion so I'll be speaking/tweeting from the perspective of my day job using the Twitter ID: @IBMSmartrEnergy and to follow or participate in the conversation folks should use the Twitter hashtag: #IBMSG.
Looking forward to this event: please join in if your schedule allows. BTW I'll be using the TweetDeck app for this event and recommend you give it a try if you haven't already.
