On March 27-29, 2017, the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) will hold its Industry Workshop in Tempe, AZ. Funded by the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) and the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate, CREDC is a five-year, $28.1 million research and development initiative that is focused on cybersecurity and cyber-resiliency of energy delivery systems for the electric power and oil and gas industries. Participants at this year’s Workshop will have an opportunity to engage with CREDC researchers, learn about CREDC research activities, and have an impact on current research and future research plans. The program will include research presentations, a featured case study and discussion, breakout discussion sessions led by industry sector and academic research leaders, Lightning Talk Presentations and a poster session. More information about the Workshop is available at the Workshop’s website. The deadline for registering is March 15.  

CREDC builds on the success of the earlier OE-funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) consortium. CREDC partners include the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Argonne National Laboratory, Arizona State University, Dartmouth College, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Old Dominion University, Oregon State University, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Rutgers University, Tennessee State University, the University of Houston, and Washington State University.
