Description

Computing, Communications, Cyber Resilience and the Future of the U.S. Electric Power System

Computing, communications, and information technologies have become essential in the planning and operation of our nation’s electricity system, a trend that is expected to increase in the future. How can we take advantage of new technologies while mitigating cyber security and resilience risks?

Join the National Academies’ Committee on the Future of Electric Power in the U.S. on November 1, 2019 for a discussion of how cyber security issues could shape electric power systems over the next 30 years. This workshop will synthesize current efforts to increase the cyber resilience of the electric power sector and discuss fundamental tensions that underlie adoption of computing and communication technologies, for example between centralized and decentralized architectures and responsibilities, between simple and complex technologies and systems, and between compliance versus security cultures.
