On January 19, 2022, Q-Net, along with Network Perception, acted as co-title sponsors for (CS)²AI (see-say for short), providing four critical speakers for an online symposium titled “Control System Cyber Security for Energy—Part 2 Electric Sector.” (CS)²AI is a nonprofit dedicated to educating and supporting professionals that have the job of securing control systems. It provides a space for this county’s greatest minds to come together to discuss cybersecurity solutions that could help save billions of people from cyber-ruin.
Part 2 on the electric sector provides realistic recommendations and best practices for electric utilities to address current and upcoming compliance and cybersecurity challenges. First, the symposium attendees watched a detailed presentation that laid out the latest government regulations that are being pushed because of recent changes in the cyberthreat landscape. Second, industry practitioners, including the speakers from Q-Net, shared their knowledge on different technology solutions and process improvements that would allow cyber-professionals to build a strong culture of cyber-resiliency. Throughout the event, attendees had plenty of opportunities to interact and ask questions to leverage the shared expertise of the (CS)²AI community. The ability to bring all these minds together and get them thinking and problem-solving is what makes the (CS)²AI and its events so significant.
As mentioned, Q-Net acted as a co-title sponsor for this event with Network Perception. Together they brought in record-setting attendance to the event. Q-Net was a perfect co-title sponsor for this event, as their cybersecurity solution, the Q-Box, actively improves infrastructure resilience by cloaking endpoint and enterprise devices. These are the speakers who represented Q-Net at the event:
Melissa Hathaway – As President of Hathaway Global Strategies, Melissa Hathaway has amassed an impressive career surrounding cybersecurity. She spearheaded the Cyberspace Policy Review for former President Barack Obama and led the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) for former President George W. Bush. Hathaway has proven to be a valuable asset time and time again.
Having been awarded the National Intelligence Reform Medal and the National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation for her leadership, she has proven to be one of the top influencers in building the United States’ cyber-resiliency.
We need (CS)²AI and the experts that lend their knowledge for such an event because there’s simply no other option than to prepare ourselves for cyberthreats. Tensions around the world are worse than ever. So, it’s not pessimistic to assume that a cyberthreat is just around the corner. If anything, (CS)²AI and the professionals involved are wise to be pushing new regulations and technologies that could help protect nations from ruin. We’ve become more reliant on the internet than we ever thought possible, and there’s no turning back. All we can do now is protect ourselves.
The best way to protect yourself from a cyberattack is to make sure it never happens in the first place. That’s what Q-Net’s Q-Box ensures. By protecting endpoints with military-grade encryption, you can rest assured that your information is safe from prying eyes. The Q-Box is great for legacy systems, or any system for that matter. It’s compatible with almost anything, and the best part is once we install it, it requires no updates or patches ever! Contact Q-Net today to schedule a free demo. You’ll be glad you did.
