The Cyber Threat to Grid Reliability
Six action areas for protection of utility operations.
Cyber threats can be lurking anywhere, so cyber security is a critical component in protecting the national grid and other utilities. IT professionals have been combating cyber attacks for more than two decades, but this is a fairly new challenge in the Operational Technology (OT) domain.
