Note: This session is for conference delegates only (Tuesday, March 5)

Cyber threats will also be an area of focus during several other sessions throughout the conference including the Electric Power CEO Plenary, chaired by Larry Makovich, IHS vice president-global power, and featuring the CEOs of CMS Energy Corporation and Consumers Energy Company, Duke Energy and PG&E Corporation; a keynote presentation by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates; a Coping with Disruption plenary discussion chaired by IHS Vice Chairman Daniel Yergin and a keynote by Walter Isaacson, best-selling author and distinguished biographer, who is currently writing a book on the digital age.

“Cybersecurity has become a critical issue for the energy industry of the 21st century,” Dr. Yergin said. “IHS CERAWeek will convene an international group of senior industry executives, government officials and thought leaders to offer timely discussion on the responses and leadership challenges of building a more resilient infrastructure.”
