Successful cyberattacks against the power distribution grid in the Ukraine, and physical attacks against power transmission in the US, have demonstrated that attacks on Critical Energy Infrastructure (CEI) are no longer just found in movies. How can cyber and physical security of CEI be regulated, while avoiding the shortcomings of the current NERC CIP standards for the electric power sector?
Learning Objectives: 1: Explore ways are we vulnerable to Critical Energy Infrastructure attacks. 2: Learn from the power industry’s experience with NERC CIP. 3: Understand possible compliance regimes for Critical Energy Infrastructure.
