Conference Alert: EnerSec Smart Grid Security Summit West 2011

This conference series, the first ever dedicated to Smart Grid Security and Privacy, had a great start last year in San Jose and now returns to California with a head of steam after robust attendance and some very strong content earlier this year in Knoxville.

The lineup keeps getting stronger and this session promises a compelling mix of workshops on day 1, followed by days 2 and 3 with regulator and industry updates, round table discussions and lots of back and forth with what has been in the past a very energized audience.

You can expect a bunch of utilities will be present, and not just the big 3 from California, plus state regulators from CA and TX, fed folks from DOE, NERC, FERC and NIST.  Also, owing to proximity to one of the largest USN bases in the world, we'll likely see some energy-minded sailors present too.

Here's the basic facts for you:
  • Dates: 3-5 Oct 2011

Next week I plan on throwing a few trivia questions at you. Correct answers may earn you a significantly reduced rate for the conference, or at the very least, hearty congratulations.
