The CPUC is holding an emergency meeting Thursday, and is requiring members of PG&E's board, C-suite and vice presidents to attend
The study surveyed 1,726 utility professionals responsible for securing or overseeing cyber risk in Operational Technology (OT) environments at electric utilities with gas, solar, wind assets, and water utilities
The energy sector has become a primary target for cyberattacks. This means that besides the ongoing transformation to smart grids there is, in parallel, an increased need for cyberdefense. However, deploying a smart grid without suitable cybersecurity might result in serious consequences; such as grid instability, utility fraud, the loss of user information – which would be a serious GDPR breach in Europe – or, in the worst case, could result in fatalities (if smart homes lose power in the middle of the winter and people get hurt by the cold).
What is the likelihood of a cyberattack on the U.S. electric grid this summer? This answer to this is complex as there are a number of aspects that factor into it. To evaluate this, we must consider the types of threat actors, the types of threats and the target – the U.S. electric grid.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced up to $30 million is available to support projects to improve the resiliency, flexibility, and integration of renewable energy resources onto New York's electric grid
Growing exposure to smart-grid-related cybersecurity risks is forcing state regulators to play a bigger role in preparing utilities for potential threats.
