Smart Grid Security
Evolution of technology has enabled industries enhance their ability to deliver services to their customer efficiently, while reducing the cost of operations. The adoption and integration of new smart grid technologies has had a positive impact on the utility industries across the globe and helped them reduce operating costs, enhance efficiency of services, increase predictability of service failures or disruptions and respond to customer requests at a much faster pace. While these technologies have helped utility industries but they have come at a challenge and a cost of their own.
America’s energy and water utilities face constant cyber-espionage and denial-of-service attacks against industrial-control systems; and agencies from the Department of Homeland Security to the Federal Bureau of Investigation are taking notice. Sanaz Browarny, chief intelligence and analysis control systems security program at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said, “On a daily basis, the U.S. is being targeted”.
