Rockville, MD (February 11, 2019) – As the power generation and chemical process industries connect more and more data in their plants, securing systems that could cause physical harm to others is a high priority. Network connections that seem immune to vulnerabilities may actually pose serious risks. To help electricity providers, CPI owners and operators, and other stakeholders understand present-day industrial cybersecurity risks and requirements, Charlene Mowery joins a panel of experts at the Third Annual Connected Plant Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, February 19 – 21, 2019.

The panel will discuss “New Technology Security Issues” and answer questions about the many facets of security at the plant level. Attendees will hear about proven best practices for protecting networks without interfering unduly with operations and fidelity.

Mowery brings more than 25 years of senior level focus on IT/OT systems, cybersecurity, protection of critical infrastructure, and risk management. Prior to joining 3eTI, she served in executive positions as a US Naval officer, overseeing facilities maintenance and repair, support services for infrastructure, and network and support for critical infrastructure facilities worldwide.

Hosted by POWER and Chemical Engineering, the Third Annual Connected Plant Conference provides attendees with the latest digital monitoring, diagnostic, analytics, Industrial Internet of Things, and decision-support technology for the power generation and chemical process industries.
