Speakers

  • Tom Tansy, Chairman, SunSpec Alliance
  • Ron Ih, Director, Business Development, Kyrio Security Solutions

The SunSpec Alliance and Kyrio Webinar #1 covered the basics of cybersecurity and how to apply and deploy it in a public key infrastructure (PKI) environment. How can you use cybersecurity and PKI to maintain the integrity of a Distributed Energy Resources (DER) ecosystem? What are certificate policies and certificate authorities, and how do they help govern ecosystem compliance?

Webinar 2 of our series goes into the foundational elements of establishing a secure ecosystem for residential and commercial (behind the meter) solar and solar plus storage systems and how that ecosystem should be managed on an ongoing basis.

Attendees of this webinar will get answers to the following questions

  • What is a certificate policy? How does it apply to the DER ecosystem including CA Rule 21?
  • How does cybersecurity fit into ecosystem management?
  • How do conformance and certification fit in with security?
  • What is the proper way to coordinate policies, certification and security for long-term ecosystem governance?
