Webinar Summary

As the electric utility sector seeks to unlock the value of deploying advanced technologies in the real-time grid control systems, from generation through to the meter, they face unprecedented complexity. This system of systems is essential to building the smart grid and realizing its benefits, yet the highly connected environment adds complexity and also introduces new vulnerabilities. Addressing these grid susceptibilities has become a matter of U.S. national security.

On the heels of an awarded DOE contract for the development of new tools and technologies to strengthen protection of the nation’s electric grid and oil and gas infrastructure from cyber-attack, ViaSat with Southern California Edison will provide a closer look at critical infrastructure protection systems that incorporates policy-based automated responses to cyber events, increasing the resiliency of transmission and distribution networks.
