Cyber security: understanding the risks

16 May 2023
Data and digitalisation

Cyber security is the number one risk keeping senior UK utilities leaders awake at night according to recent research conducted by Utility Week. In an environment of international geopolitical tension and economic volatility, it is inevitable that cyber aggressors will increasingly target critical national infrastructure owners, seeking out vulnerabilities in their increasingly digital operations to hold companies and customers to ransom and cause havoc. Join this session to discover: 

  • The volume of cyber attacks on UK utilities – and what’s keeping them safe 

  • The risk of cyber terrorism, and the factors driving this 

  • How to limit the likelihood of successful cyber-attack and safeguard our networks, including safety standards and access protocols  

  • How we can best protect personal data and assets? 

  • As utilities push to share and open-up data what digital security measures are necessary and required?
