An Interview with Dr. Edmund O. Schweitzer, III

Main Stage

Dr. Schweitzer is largely responsible for the invention and use of the digital relay and many other process and protection devices found in substations and other parts of electric systems. If you have seen blue boxes in substation racks, you have seen the result of his and the SEL teams work.

Dr. Schweitzer’s company has also been on the leading / bleeding edge of ICS cybersecurity with participation in research projects and development of security products and security controls.

In this on-stage interview, Dale will talk to Ed about how he helped bring about the massive change that digital relays caused and what the ICS security community can learn from where change succeeded and failed in his stellar career.
