Though there is no cure-all solution to prevent every potential threat from affecting the nation’s infrastructure assets, public power and the electric utility industry have been in the business of ensuring the electric grid’s security for a long time. APPA will be hosting a live conversation on Twitter tomorrow, Tuesday, June 10, from 1-1:30 p.m. Eastern to discuss the defense-in-depth approach to grid security.

As the industry awaits the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve physical security standards developed by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (see Public Power Daily, March 10), APPA subject matter experts will identify key issues and discuss #GridSecurity for a half hour. APPA is also releasing a new infographic.

Follow APPA on Twitter at @APPAnews to join the conversation via hashtag #PublicPowerChat. Insights from APPA’s subject matter experts can also be found on APPA’s new Experts Blog.
