At the event, Desai will address the industrial smart meter market’s expected growth throughout the next five years, where as many as half a billion smart meters will be installed globally. In addition, he will explain how many countries will soon become reliant on Internet-connected smart meters to deliver their electricity, facilitating delivery but vastly increasing the potential attack surface of the electric grid. Desai’s talk will also focus on securing these meters via the Wi-SUN Alliance’s Field Area Network. As part of the discussion, the talk will also cover provisioning digital certificates and how they play a role in making smart meters secure.
