Fortress Brings Awareness to Cybersecurity at DistribuTECH International

Fortress VP Tobias Whitney will be amongst industry thought leaders as he delivers his presentation, “SBOMs and HBOMs: The Future of Supply Chain Security”

Fortress Information Security will be converging with power utility giants at DistribuTECH International Monday, May 23 through Wednesday, May 25 at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.

DistribuTECH International is an annual networking and educational event in which leaders from all sectors of power transmission and distribution address the emerging technologies used to move electricity from the power plant, through distribution systems, to the meter inside your home.

Cybersecurity is just one of the many essential elements involved in the movement and distribution of electricity; other industry professionals present at this event will represent the products and services related to:

  • Electricity delivery automation and control systems
  • Energy efficiency
  • Demand response
  • Renewable energy integration
  • Advanced metering
  • T&D system operation and reliability
  • Communications technologies
  • Water utility technologies

This list is by no means exhaustive, but all the same exemplifies the interconnectivity between all sectors providing national critical infrastructure services.

Fortress is proud to be one of over 400 companies that will fill the exhibit hall at this event with lively conversation and unique thought leadership. We share DistribuTECH International’s goal of exchanging knowledge, problem solving timely issues, and creating a world network of cross-industry utilities professionals.

Please come say hello! Fortress will be located at Booth #307 and we will also be serving as the track sponsor for “Cybersecuring the Grid.” If you would like to take a deeper dive into Fortress’ latest tool in supply chain risk management – SBOMs – then come to Tobias Whitney’s presentation on Tuesday, May 24th, 10:00-10:30 AM CST, C143, First Level.

We would love to discuss how Fortress fits into the intricate puzzle that is the nation’s power grid. We hope to see you there, but if you are unable to attend, schedule a meeting at your convenience with Fortress’ Nick Noll to learn more about how to secure your organization’s supply chain.
