Smart Grid Security

Today’s utilities face growing demands to enforce security and reliability requirements for industrial communication systems, data management, cyber-attacks, and physical protection from regulators and government bodies such as the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The transition from the present state of electric grids to smart grids is one of the most pressing matters for all countries. This report will provide readers with the current and future dangers smart grid utilities and smart grid solution providers will face. The study examines the most important industrial control systems at risk and potential threats from cyber-attacks such as the dubbed "Night Dragon." Additionally, the report will present a detailed overview of what government regulators and leading smart grid companies are currently doing to stop these risks.
