The energy industry faces an unprecedented barrage of cyber threats, attacks and intrusions, both internally and externally.
With the rapid evolution of technology and the increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks, the energy industry is an enticing target of cyber criminals.
A robust cyber security program is more critical than ever to data security, systems reliability, and regulatory compliance. Utility companies are required to meet the ever evolving cyber security requirements in the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) rules of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Additionally, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act requires strict cyber security reporting for those utilities who have received Smart Grid Investment Grants.
With tremendous changes happening throughout the industry over the past few years, new responsibilities for stakeholders (including vendors) have emerged to ensure the continued security and integrity of the critical electric power grid. Utilities also maintain confidential customer information that needs to be kept safe.
