Description

Modern electric power grid is a complex cyber-physical critical infrastructure that forms the lifeline of our society, its reliable and secure operation is of paramount importance to national security and economic well-being. The electric power grid, as of today, is a highly automated network, wherein a variety of sensors, computing systems, and communication networks are interconnected to the electric grid for the purpose of monitoring, protection, control, and market functions. In recent years, several authoritative sources have acknowledged the rapidly evolving and sophisticated nature of cyber threats – icluding the two recent cyber attacks on Ukrainian grid (2015 and 2016) and also numerous attempts to infiltrate into grid infrastructures of nations around the globe – and the urgent need to protect the grid against such threats/attacks.

In this context, the development of a comprehensive cyber security framework — encompassing attack deterrence, prevention, detection, mitigation, resilience, and forensics — is among the most important R&D priority, and an equally important priority is to develop a highly skilled workforce in this important area of national need. This short course is organized into four modules: (i) overview of information security – threats, vulnerabilities, security properties and key concepts; (ii) cyber threats to grid control environment – SCADA, attack-scenarios, consequences; (iii) End-to-end cybersecurity framework – risk assessement and mitigation, attack prevention, detection, mitigation, and resilence; (iv) cybersecurity best practices – testebeds, industry practices, and compiance (including NERC CIP). The course is beneficial to both academic and industry auidence.

This course can be attended in person or through the internet. Recording will be available to those who registered. This short course is sponsored by the University of Minnesota Center for Electric Energy [UMCEE].

This course will provide 4 Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
