Race to Protect the Grid


Are You in the ‘Race to the Protect the Grid’?

CyberCon has partnered with D3esports, an international virtual motorsports platform that utilizes some of the most advanced technologies, to launch the ‘Race to Protect the Grid’ campaign.

As part of the campaign, a simulated race will be conducted during CyberCon 2019, scheduled November 19-21 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

This competition provides an engaging and interactive way for CyberCon attendees, including sponsors and speakers, to demonstrate their commitment to protecting the U.S. power grid.


The power and utility industry’s race to protect the grid from additional cyber-attacks is a very real race. Those who are currently in the race know the threats are persistent, ongoing and escalating.


Get In The Race to ‘Protect the Grid’

CyberCon sponsors can also get into the action of the ‘Race to Protect the Grid’ campaign and demonstrate their company’s drive to protect the grid by sponsoring one of the virtual racing simulators, which includes a custom branded race car in the virtual environment. Sponsorship opportunities are available for companies looking to increase visibility of their brand, capabilities and technologies to senior-level decision makers in the U.S. power and utilities industry.
