We’re excited to be heading back to Boston this year for CEO Summit 2016. The Summit is an opportunity for our staff to sit down with the leadership at our Member utilities and discuss their needs, share our development plans, and explore the new technologies and solutions available to our Members through the UPN suite of integrated products.

A General Manager who attended Summit 2015 recently shared with us the value he found in attending. During the Summit, our VP of Technical Services Greg Gray had introduced Advanced Security, a total database encryption solution. The GM understood the importance of protecting his critical consumer information and promptly instructed his Manager of Information Technology to work with SEDC to ensure their database and backups were encrypted. Just a few short months later, the utility was faced with an attempted breach of that consumer data, but the encrypted data was secure. Because the General Manager had learned first-hand about the importance of using Advanced Security protection, thousands of consumer records were safe and inaccessible to cyber criminals.

More than anything, the CEO Summit is an open exchange of information. Our goal with each Summit is to give managers and key staff critical details about the tools available to your utility. Join us for Summit 2016 and experience it all first hand.
