How to Securely Support a Rapidly Expanding Encryption Infrastructure
As smart meters continue to replace previous models, such as analog meters, utility companies are faced with a myriad of issues to address that were not present prior to this increased state of connectivity. Data protection is top of mind for all involved, whether it's the consumer or the meter manufacturers. These concerns are not just limited to the availability of an growing amount of personal information being collected, but also to the numerous attack vectors introduced to the Smart Grid System.
During this webcast, we will discuss the current and future state of smart metering in Europe, and what this means for utility companies worldwide. We'll introduce scalable and repeatable methods for incorporating an encryption strategy that will enable data protection and is backed by industry trusted and recognized organizations such as PRIME Alliance and OASIS.
- The importance of employing end-to-end security throughout the Smart Grid System.
What organizations like Prime Alliance and OASIS are doing to develop standards and make the IoT more secure.
Why adopting an encryption key management strategy that meets existing standards is critical for not just securing meters, but for national and global security.

About Prime Alliance
Prime Alliance, a Belgium-based AISBL organization works to develop features and specifications that address the evolving challenges of power line communications. PRIME has emerged as a proven, open, ITU-T and IEEE standardized technology that makes smart grids real.
OASIS, a US-based, non-profit, promotes industry consensus and produces worldwide standards for security, IoT, cloud computing, energy, content technologies, emergency management, and other areas. OASIS open standards offer the potential to lower cost, stimulate innovation, grow global markets, and protect the right of free choice of technology. The OASIS KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol)was developed to help advance interoperability standards for enterprise encryption key management.
