CHICAGO, Ill., April 8, 2002 — A panel discussion to be presented at the 2002 American Power Conference will provide details on the changes which need to be made to critical electric infrastructure to ensure security in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks.
The panel is part of a wide-reaching conference from Electric Light & Power magazine that covers topics such as transmission, distribution, generation and all aspects of electric utility business. The American Power Conference runs from April 15-17 in Chicago.
Protecting the electric infrastructure has come to mean a different and much more urgent thing since the terrorist attacks on U.S. soil last year. The panel will discuss how the electric industry is forming strategies and taking action.
Chairing the panel is Kevin Parish of MCR Performance Solutions.
Other speakers include:
Craig Zingman and Richard Marshall, both from the Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection at the Department of Energy.
Cyril Shepherd, Team Lead and Information System Security Officer for Power Systems at the Federal Aviation Administration.
Dr. James Peerenboom, Director of the Infrastructure Assurance Center for Argonne National Laboratory.
