Smart Grid Maturity Model Navigation Series: Survey Workshops

Many public power utilities are working to define an appropriate grid modernization strategy that makes sense for their communities. To facilitate these efforts and promote information sharing among APPA members, APPA is partnering with Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute and SAIC to offer a series of virtual workshops based on the Smart Grid Maturity Model (SGMM). Through a series of online workshops, participants will determine the maturity of their intelligent infrastructure, learn how they compare to other utilities, set targets for intelligent infrastructure implementation, and discuss what it takes to develop and execute an infrastructure roadmap.

Cybersecurity Awareness Webinar

A four-part Webinar Series presented by the APPA Academy and Hometown Connections

Protecting your utility from the damage of cyber crime, sabotage and bad practices depends upon all personnel following the basic principles of cybersecurity. Your operations and IT teams cannot succeed without the support of everyone else on staff.   Security awareness/training has been proven to be one of the most effective "low hanging fruit" means to improving the security of utilities.   This four-part webinar series provides Cybersecurity Awareness Training to every member of the utility staff and has been structured as a series to build upon and reinforce the training concepts. 

Webinar takes place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET
