Conference Alert: Security at Distributech 2013

The annual electric sector conference in North America is coming up next week in San Diego. Called Distributech, the 7,500 or so attendees will peruse booths featuring the latest reclosers, transformers, comm gear, outage management systems, etc.

They can also peruse me, as I'll be at the large IBM booth alongside colleagues discussing solutions for:
  • Smart Metering and AMI
  • Distributed Energy and Electric Vehicles (EVs)
  • Asset Management
  • Grid Operations
  • Communications and Cloud
And of course, security, privacy and compliance. I'll be there with my security consulting services colleague and industry veteran, Steve Dougherty. Will also be doing a 30-minute auditorium session called "Utility Cyber Breach Scenarios & Responses" which should be a good one.

If you can make it, here are the details:
  • Dates: 29-31 January
  • Venue: San Diego Convention Center 
  • URL:
While the conference is going on, will be tweeting highlights from @sgsblog. Lastly, if you aren't attending, will be happy to share findings and observations afterwards on the blog and/or via other means.

Thanks for the perusal proposal Andy but it seems delightful to have it in Aweber or Podcast type, to give chance to others who can't make it personally. What do you think about it

Wireless would make a great backup system. You don't need to keep the line live all the time, just use it to signal the alarm when the sensors trigger, and the phone line is down. Pressure Sensor Driveway Alarm

I have also found some great websites that have wonderful heart healthy recipes. Urgent Care Centers

I had to go to a convention and they had convention security in Las Vegas, NV. It was the first time I'd been to a convention that had security there. It was kind of crazy!
