North American utility interest in digital substations has increased, driven by the demand for reliability improvements and cost savings. The digital transformation introduces open communications standards and utilizes Ethernet-based protection and control technology. However, a major obstacle to industry adoption has been the perception and fear that “going digital” exposes utility assets to cyber threats and NERC CIP standard non-conformity.
This webinar will help allay your fear of the digital unknown. We’ll discuss cybersecurity requirements to secure substation automation protection and control systems and the interfaces into the utility enterprise. Education and awareness are paramount to adopting and embracing cybersecurity as an enabler to advanced monitoring and control systems. Industry standards are our friend and establish the blueprint to cyber maturity in support of the utility’s digital transformation.
