Protecting utilities against cyber attacks

Connect with us

Cybersecurity is a top concern for U.S. utilities, and with good reason. According to the Department of Homeland Security, attacks on the utilities industry are rising "at an alarming rate." Utilities are looking for better ways to segment data between their networks controlling production facilities and their internal business networks.

Critical infrastructure protections for public utilities

Attacks against key energy infrastructure – the electricity system, in particular –are increasing in frequency and sophistication. Given this reality, experts agree that the nation’s bulk power system and its operators must be prepared to identify, minimize, respond to, and recover from any unplanned catastrophic event, including cyber attacks that could disrupt the power grid.
