Jumpstart Your Cybersecurity Strategy with NIST Guidance

In 2017, the total cost of a data breach averaged $3.62 million. Companies who experienced a data breach have a 27.7% likelihood of a recurring material data breach over the next two years. These staggering statistics from a 2017 Ponemon Study highlights the need for a strong cybersecurity strategy going into this year.  On this webinar, NCCoE Director Donna Dodson will share observations and accomplishments from 2017 NIST initiatives, NIST’s 2018 cybersecurity focus areas, such as cloud security, internet infrastructure, and industry-aligned (healthcare, financial services) cybersecurity projects, and opportunities for industry engagement.

Industrial IoT Energy Forum

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one of the main technology drivers behind new applications in the Energy Industry. However, integration of different technologies, processes, business, social, and regulation realms presents complicated security, privacy & interoperability challenges which must be addressed as IIoT technologies develop. The Industrial Internet Consortium is bringing together global energy leaders to discuss requirements, gaps and opportunities for leveraging the data that is building up within and around our energy systems, and to use that data to increase production and decrease costs. The IIoT Energy Forum will highlight the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and NIST’s activities in the Energy sector – shining a spotlight on smart grids, industrial analytics, security, and other emerging technologies and applications in energy.
