Cyber smart√ Cyber alert√ Cyber secure‽
The term "smart grid" is vague, in large part because standards are still being defined. While the term means different things to different stakeholders—all agree that the smart grid is bringing major changes to the way that electricity is generated, transmitted, distributed and consumed.
For any smart grid implementation, communication among various automation components is critical. Typically, these communication systems are based on Ethernet and the Internet. Open systems reduce communications costs, but they are also much more vulnerable to cyber attack.
Read this white paper to understand why cyber security is an important component of any smart grid deployment and the steps that can be taken to ensure that your utility is adequately protected.
