Utility Cybersecurity: Recommended Practices by OMICRON and DNV
With power grids gradually becoming software intensive and digitally connected, their exposure to cyber threats has increased, putting key assets and the operations of an organization at risk. At the same time, the sophistication of cyber-attacks is rising.
In this joint webinar recording, speakers from DNV and OMICRON present their insights about recommended practices for ensuring the cybersecurity of OT-networks in utilities and for ensuring efficient detection and response processes. The key for securing the power grid is that IT security officers and power engineers work together to implement security measures while still allowing efficient maintenance and operation of the grid.
- Understanding best practices to secure the networks in control centers, power plants and substations
- Selecting the right countermeasures and preventive actions to take
- Learn why it is important that power engineers and IT security officers work together to secure the grid
- Identifying why intrusion detection in power utility automation networks is key for minimizing the consequences of cyber-attacks
