Cyber Security & Resilience
We rely on cyber networks for communication, commerce, and the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems that control the electric grid, water distribution, and gas and oil pipelines. Protecting these networks have become a challenge for both industry and government.
Our facility supports the research and development of innovative technologies, tools, and techniques that reduce the risks posed by cyber and other emerging threats on critical infrastructure. Continuing to increase the security, reliability, and resiliency of our electricity delivery system will help ensure the success of grid modernization.
"It is no longer a question of if your critical infrastructure will be compromised. Instead, the priority needs to be recovery time after a natural disaster or manmade attack."
