Renewable Energy, Energy Security, and Cyber Security

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

The electric grid is increasingly a digital communications network.  Indeed many of the leading technologies to enable the integration of renewable energy sources onto the grid are dependent on the digital and real time sharing of information.  However, recent, well-publicized corporate cyber hacks have illustrated an inherent weakness of the technology – it is possible to inflict significant economic and property damage anonymously and from a great distance.    What are the security, technological and legal implications of cyber hacks and cyber terrorism on the operation of electric networks?  In this webinar we will hear from security, engineering and privacy experts will explain the existing framework and discuss the lessons and warnings for the future.
