Four authoritative speakers are preparing to address the topic of cybersecurity at hydro facilities during a free editorial webcast that will take place on April 22.

The webcast, titled Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection: What You Need to Know to Keep Your Hydro Facility Safe, is intended to address the serious concern posed by cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, such as hydroelectric power facilities and Bulk Electric System facilities.

Our impressive lineup of speakers includes:
