The EPRI Digitalization, Asset Management, and Data Security workshops are a series of events and workshops focused on digitalization technologies and processes, equipment reliability, information and communication technologies, cyber security, controls, and automation. The workshops are topically aligned into three tracks that build upon these common themes: digitalization, asset management, and operational data. Each track is designed to include relevant cross-topical, collaborative, and interactive sessions to increase attendee value and participation throughout the week. Attendees can tailor their meeting focus toward several different options.

Attendees will gain applied value in the respective topical track focus area by technology transfer of EPRI research results, learning and operating experience from attending industry peers, and hands-on opportunities to experience technologies and products that can be implemented within attendees’ plants and networks. Attendees should gain knowledge in areas of digital implementation, value, and risks that can be shared with colleagues and used for planning digital transformation activities.
