Power Sector Cybersecurity Building Blocks Webinar Series: Risk Management

This webinar from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) hosted in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC) is the next webinar in the Cybersecurity Building Blocks Webinar Series.

Cybersecurity risk touches almost every aspect of an organization’s operations and so all organizations, including power utilities, face some degree of cybersecurity risk. Cybersecurity Risk Management is critical to the operation of the energy system. Risk Management is a time and labor-intensive process that requires organizations to identify and prioritize their risks and risk appetites, making Risk Management a complex endeavor. Risk Management protocols help utilities identify risks and then evaluate and decide how they will reduce risks to a level appropriate to their business objectives. Having a cybersecurity risk management strategy focused on avoiding, assessing, and mitigating risk will help provide structure and continuity to business processes and decision making for utilities.

This webinar will explore risk management protocols, how to assess an appropriate level of risk, and how to develop a risk management strategy and allow subject matter experts from Deloitte, NREL, and CariSec Global to discuss their experiences and key considerations for cybersecurity Risk Management in the energy sector.
