Physical and Cyber Security

Our daily activities, economic development and national security all depend on reliable energy and protected infrastructure.  A transformed power grid will have new, robust design standards that can withstand extreme events, as well as secure networks that protect a digital grid.

A hardened grid will include:

  • New standards for physical protection of critical infrastructure
  • Secure digital networks that are ready for new and emerging technologies
  • More grid capacity and communications infrastructure to support a self-healing grid
  • Improved capability to intervene and prevent outages before they occur
