The Imperative for Grid Resiliency: Challenges and Approaches

The coupling between the power grid and its cyber infrastructure is inherent, and the extent to which the smart grid vision can be achieved depends upon the cyber security and resiliency of its cyber infrastructure. Significant investments have been made in research and development to make the grid more secure, but are we better off today than we were 20 year ago? This talk describes selected research results from the DOE- and DHS-funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG; tcipg.org) Center and Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC; cred-c.org) which are aimed at ensuring that the power grid cyber infrastructure is protected from both accidental failures and malicious attacks from adversaries ranging from casual hackers to nation states. In addition to describing progress that has been made, the talk highlights difficult problems that must be solved to achieve grid resiliency.
