NRRI Webinar - How Can We Protect the Electric Grid Against Cyber Threats?

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 (2pm - 3:30pm US/Eastern)

The Colonial Pipeline ransomware hack has highlighted the growing threat of cyber attacks against energy infrastructure. The electric grid is undergoing rapid transformation as a result of new technologies being deployed on utility networks and behind-the-meter by consumers. Many of these technologies produce and transmit massive amounts of data and are increasingly connected to grid operations centers through network-based communications. The growing connectivity between the grid and customer devices increases cybersecurity vulnerabilities and broadens the threat landscape by expanding the number of potential entry points through which malicious cyberattacks can be launched. This webinar will discuss cyber threats to utility operations and review technologies that utilities may use to stop or minimize problems associated with these cyber events.
