Cybersecurity Resource Guide for Public Power Utilities

Implementing and sustaining cybersecurity best practices is the first step to protecting against cyberattacks, breaches, and other incidents. The American Public Power Association acknowledges the importance of protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical infrastructure systems and digital assets. This comprehensive, high-level cybersecurity guide, developed by APPA, offers reliable industry guidance and resources aligned with a high-level outline of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework.

The guide offers resources related to supporting utilities in the five core functions - identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover - as well as listing these resources by organization.
