NERC: State of Reliability Report 2017

The U.S. power grid had no reportable cybersecurity incidents in 2016, and that’s a good thing.

But don’t get too confident or let your guard down, so said the latest State of Reliability report from the North American Reliability Corporation. NERC’s 200-page plus 2017 report showed no success from hackers to cause loss of load, but it did warn that the risk is ever increasing.

Transmission outages caused by human error, meanwhile, showed a slight increase. The bulk power system resiliency to severe weather continued to improve. NERC’s report showed the overall system misoperation rate declined for a fourth straight year, to 8.7 percent but still remaining a priority.
