About the event

Overview 

In September 2023, Politico reported that utilities are experiencing a significant uptick in physical threats and cyberattacks targeting crucial grid infrastructure. As utilities grapple with the influx of customer and smart meter data, operational data from SCADA, and emerging technologies like cloud computing and AI, industry leaders are keenly aware of the need to mitigate growing cyber threats. Generative AI is heralded as a potential breakthrough to overcome cybersecurity threats and attacks. Its potential includes:

  • Enhanced Threat Detection
  • Adversarial Defense
  • Automated Response
  • Personalized Security Measures
  • Privacy Preservation

However, there are also risks. Join us for this session to discuss the potential of generative AI to help mitigate cyber-attacks, along with key considerations and potential risks.

 Key Takeaways 

  • Increased Cyber Threats to Utilities: Utilities are facing a rising number of physical threats and cyberattacks targeting crucial grid infrastructure. The influx of customer data, smart meter data, and operational data from SCADA systems, combined with emerging technologies like cloud computing and AI, necessitates robust cybersecurity measures.
  • Potential of Generative AI in Cybersecurity: Generative AI is seen as a promising solution for enhancing cybersecurity in the utility sector. Its capabilities include enhanced threat detection, adversarial defense, automated response, personalized security measures, and privacy preservation, all critical for protecting grid infrastructure.
  • Balancing Benefits and Risks: While generative AI offers significant potential for mitigating cyber-attacks, it also presents certain risks. This session will explore the benefits of generative AI in cybersecurity, along with key considerations and potential risks that industry leaders must be aware of.
