The emergency cybersecurity Executive Order issued on May 1, 2020, by the President serves as a stark reminder that cyber threats are a real and ever-present danger, and everyone involved in the energy industry must be prepared to do their part to defend the grid from harm and bad actors. This point has been further confirmed with FERC’s recently issued white paper on proposed investments to enhance cybersecurity for the Bulk Electric System.
Software is the ‘brain’ behind the power sector’s command and control systems, and professionals across the utility industry must ensure that software installed and granted access to the grid is safe. In this PowerSession, you will learn about risk assessment steps you can take to ensure that your command and control software objects are trustworthy enough to install and grant access to sensitive power equipment.
