Cyberthreats for the power grid
Cyberattacks – from untargeted ransom-ware to sophisticated national breaches – can threaten the performance of the grid or impact individual privacy. The consequences for utilities, their customers and related economies can be serious.
A reliable and stable power supply is core to energy grid operations. In response to a breach, utilities cannot simply shut down or isolate systems. Their primary concern is keeping the system running without interrupting supply.
