  • Growing cybersecurity risks in the power grid require that utilities implement a variety of security mechanisms (SMs), including VPNs, firewalls, authentication, and access control mechanisms. While these mechanisms provide some level of defense, they also may contain software vulnerabilities which allow an attack to bypass their protection. Because the same SM type is often used to protect a large number of substations, a single vulnerability could enable a coordinated attack by simultaneously… CONTINUE READING
