PSI was pleased to be a part of this year’s event. PSI President and WB Services’ co-founder, Mr. Sean Williams briefed the TVC Board prior to the Summit kickoff by presenting on the TVC’s Secure Grid Initiative. Mr. Williams chairs this Initiative. WB Services, in partnership with PSI, publicly launched the Secure Grid Initiative at the TVC Summit in May 2015 after the TVC Board of Directors and Leadership Council formally adopted this initiative in March 2015. The TVC Secure Grid Initiative’s focus is to make TVC community aware of the growing threat to our grid and collaborate on ideas and solutions that make our grid more secure. To do this, we are bringing together public, private and institutional partners in the TVC to discuss creating a national test bed to explore the development and deployment of technologies and training capabilities to address the challenges of protecting the grid from physical attack.
Mr. Bobby Beaty, PSI’s CEO, Mr. Alden Sanborn, PSI Director of Business Development, and Ms. Stephanie Long Neu, PSI Proposal Manager attended the event to support the TVC Secure Grid Initiative as well as promote PSI’s Services.
