Cyberattacks are on the rise, and a staggering 41% of them target the energy sector. In order to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure, the sector must contend with a diverse set of unique challenges, from aging and disparate networks to a lack of awareness of threats and vulnerabilities. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), in collaboration with energy sector stakeholders and cybersecurity technology vendors, has developed example solutions that utilities can use to help bolster their security postures. The NCCoE, a part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will host a workshop on October 18, 2016 at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) Grid Security Conference (GridSecCon) in Quebec City, Canada. GridSecCon brings together cybersecurity and physical security experts from industry and government to share emerging security trends, policy advancements, and lessons learned related to the electric utility sector.
