Developing a Cyber Security Plan

Series Overview
This is the seventh in a series of seven webinars on cybersecurity issues for electric utilities. Public power utilities take pride in delivering safe, reliable, affordable electric service. A cyber attack could undermine safety and reliability and put a utility’s reputation at risk. Increasingly, integrated utility software and equipment networks like advanced metering, outage management, and distribution automation systems are vulnerable to everything from mundane malware to sophisticated cyber attacks. Learn how to protect your utility, customers, community, and the electric grid from potentially damaging interruptions.


Webinar Description
Electric utilities are accustomed to responding to unplanned disruptions in service. However, preparing for potential cyber attacks requires dedicated planning and resources.
