Defending the grid

Defending the grid by integrating security, protecting control systems, reviewing internal processes, designing compliance frameworks, incorporating best practices, and enabling automation via IT

The grid is vulnerable. The industrial control systems (ICS) of critical grid infrastructure—such as transmission and distribution equipment—are now IP-enabled. There is also a marked growth in grid applications and systems to manage growing smart grid complexity. This exposes utilities to cyber attacks, which can result in performance degradation and business losses, and endanger lives.

Better management of the large volumes of data now generated by these systems can improve controls, and is essential to meet regulators’ growing demands for greater vigilance.
