Workshop Overview

The Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) is a five-year, $28.1 million research and development initiative that is funded by the Department of Energy and is focused on cybersecurity and cyber-resiliency of energy delivery systems for the electric power and oil & gas industries. This effort builds on the success of the preceding Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) consortium.

The 2018 CREDC Industry Workshop will be held on September 12-13, 2018 at the MIT Samberg Conference Center with a welcome reception on the evening of September 11. Registration is required. The fee to attend is $200. The deadline to register is August 15, 2018. More information is below.

Our 1.5 day program features invited speakers and panelists from industry, national labs, and government agencies that focus on emerging and critical topics in EDS cybersecurity and cyber resiliency, a CREDC research poster session, and networking opportunities. Participants will have an opportunity to engage with CREDC researchers, to learn about CREDC research, development, & technology, and to have an impact on current research and future research plans.

NOTE: this event is not open to academic researchers from non-CREDC partner universities.

We value our relationships with energy industry stakeholders. This workshop aims to establish or further develop a long-term relationship with you and your organization that includes frequent opportunities to engage with and contribute to CREDC research and development efforts. If you represent energy stakeholders at power utilities, oil and gas industries, vendors of energy delivery equipment/technology, security consultant firms, or industry R&D labs, please plan to join!

Participants may also qualify for Professional Development Hours (PDH) and Continuing Education Units (CEU).
