Cyber Security: Legislation, Reg. and Ex. Orders

APPA staff members from three departments lead this webinar: Will Coffman, senior government relations representative; Puesh Kumar, director of engineering and operations; and Nathan Mitchell, director of electric reliability standards and compliance. They will provide a review of cybersecurity issues from a legislative and regulatory standpoint, including actions taken outside of those frameworks (such as executive orders).

The speakers also discuss what the future holds for the electric sector in this area, and how individual utilities should engage with their legislators and others to educate them on the steps the utility industry is taking on cybersecurity.
