Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on June 4th at 2pm EDT for the inaugural roundtable on investing in the cybersecurity of the energy transition. This event will feature high-level remarks from Davis Hake, Co-Founder and Vice President of Business Development at Resilience, Leo Simonovich, Vice President and Global Head, Industrial Cyber and Digital Security at Siemens Energy, as well as experts from the utility sector. The roundtable will be moderated by Trey Herr, Director of the Cyber Statecraft Initiative under the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security at the Atlantic Council. The speakers will discuss how financial institutions and private equity firms can recognize and mitigate cybersecurity risks as they invest in an increasingly digital, distributed, and low-carbon energy sector. 

As the energy industry becomes increasingly connected, investors need more information and transparency into both the benefits of the digital energy ecosystem and how it exposes their assets to cyberthreats. If cyber risks are not adequately understood and managed by owners and investors, the promise of a digitally connected energy transition has the potential to wreak havoc on the industry’s financial and physical security. This roundtable will explore strategies to ensure that asset owners have a more complete understanding of the cyber risk profile of their assets and actionable solutions to mitigate those risks. This conversation is particularly relevant in light of the recent ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline.

The event kicks off a series of meetings where asset owners and operators, cybersecurity experts, and government officials can do a deep dive into key cybersecurity issues within the energy sector. 

This workshop is a private, off-the-record event, and the Chatham House rule applies. It will be held on the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. Please register below to receive zoom information for the event.
