Challenges of cyber security in the introduction of intelligent energy solutions

A guided conversation with strategic leaders and selected experts of business organizations will be organized by the Slovenian Association of Corporate Security and CER - Partnership for Sustainable Economy of Slovenia.

The purpose of the event

This meeting will be dedicated to "Challenges of cyber security in the introduction of intelligent energy solutions". The topic will be specifically dedicated to opening a discussion related to the introduction of intelligent energy systems and solutions, most of which are based on support for the digitization process. This, in turn, opens serious challenges related to ensuring the cyber security of information systems that will support the smooth operation of new energy systems. In the next period, a great deal of attention and financial support will be paid to this process of introducing alternative energy sources at the EU level. Proper understanding of the challenges on the one hand and the opportunities on the other will make us more competitive and efficient in the safe implementation of these demanding processes. We will witness tectonic shifts in the use of energy sources, which will be an extremely important challenge from the point of view of ensuring the continuity of our key processes.

The event will take place in a combination of an introductory lecture and a round table discussion in which you, our valuable participants, will also be able to participate. Only in this way will we find the right solutions and develop good practices that will help us to ensure higher corporate security in our environments.

Indicative points of discussion

  • The impact of changed energy trends on ensuring the uninterrupted operation of electricity supply.
  • Alternative energy sources and strategic directions envisaged by the EU.
