Cybersecurity and Physical Security
The American Public Power Association is helping member utilities across the country create a more resilient and secure electric grid that is prepared for both cyber and physical threats. Public power utilities are working with their communities, states, and the federal government to ensure compliance with stringent security standards and to manage risk.
The video below provides some quick tips for improving basic cybersecurity practices in the workplace.
APPA has a number of free and paid resources, linked in the sidebar, available to utilities to evaluate their cybersecurity posture, identify areas for improvement, and develop roadmaps to implement new policies and technologies to improve resilience against potential threat actors.
Many of these programs were funded through the Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) cooperative agreement between APPA and the U.S. Department of Energy to help public power utilities create stronger, more secure systems. Learn more about the CEDS program.
