Ensuring the Security and Resiliency of America's Energy Grid
In recent years, the security and resiliency of America's energy grid have come under increased scrutiny due to cyber security threats, terrorism and natural disasters. The 2016 hacking of Vermont's Burlington Electric by foreign actors exposed the vulnerability of computer systems and served as a warning to other utility providers. Experts predict that this type of attack and others will continue. Widespread power outages caused by Winter Storm Uri have further highlighted the importance of this issue. This program explores the policies and initiatives that governments and utility providers are undertaking to increase the security and resiliency of America's energy grid.
