Topics: Security

November 8, 2018

Adam Golodner
Senior Counsel, Global Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice Group
Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP

Did you know that Russian hackers gained access to the controls of U.S. utility companies this past summer? With the Internet of Things controlling much of the energy infrastructure in the U.S., and an increasingly aggressive group of state-sponsored hackers operating out of Russia, the risk of significant disruption to the US power grid is a very real concern. What do you need to know as a Tuck MBA?
Join the Center for Digital Strategies and the Revers Center for Energy for an overview of the global cybersecurity threat landscape and how the internet of things and its prevalence in the energy sector enables security vulnerabilities that can have a significant impact on the U.S. energy grid (and beyond).
CDS Executive Fellow and cybersecurity expert, Adam Golodner, will spend a full day at Tuck speaking on a variety of topics related to global cybersecurity, with a specific focus on its impact on the energy sector.
Adam will start with a public session for all students setting the general state of security, followed by a private session for CDS and RCE Fellows interested in learning how the merging of IT and Operations (via IoT) further complicates the challenges faced by the energy sector with respect to cybersecurity and operational continuity.
