Critical Infrastructure Security - Electrical Grid

Purchase

This report looks at the cyber security concerns of the electrical grid as it transforms into a dynamic smart grid. The first section looks at the use of ICTs in the utility network and the vulnerabilities of newly connected power control systems. Research is also made into the security aspects of substations and the advanced metering infrastructure. The second section analyzes the spending that will be undertaken to secure the electrical grid and the requirements for adequately protecting this critical infrastructure. An overview is included of technical measures, standardization efforts, and best practice guidelines. The final section reviews a number of industrial control system vendors, niche industrial cyber security vendors, and efforts by electric grid operators in the area of cyber security.
