When the topic of cloud adoption and Industrial Control Systems is raised there are many positions and perspectives that are raised either supporting or opposing the activity. As we look around the world and see various critical infrastructure sectors adopting and integrating cloud technologies across vendor solutions and entity operations it is clear that the trend is only going to continue to grow. Considering what this means for a sector in a region, brings forth the question: what does this mean for companies who are NERC registered entities considering cloud adoption. This Webinar series will discuss the challenges presented by applying the NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards to cloud computing environments.

This first webinar in the series of six will dive into the topic from the various stakeholder perspectives and highlight the opportunities and challenges awaiting this sector. The following webinars will highlight various perspectives with speakers from the asset owners and operators, Cloud Service Providers, solutions providers, CIP SMEs working across multiple entities and regions, as well as region representatives discussing resources and guidance available today.
