Join Dr. Ray Klump, professor and faculty member of Lewis University’s MS in Information Security, for a webinar discussing emerging security issues as the nation’s electrical grid undergoes a transformation into a network that can be monitored and controlled by smart devices. The change from a largely passive network to a more interactive one will result in more control, reliability, and energy efficiency, but it also makes the grid more vulnerable to cyber attacks and hackers. Dr. Klump will address methods to quickly report cyber incidents on the grid to help improve operators' ability to respond to threats. This approach is based on a similar communications program operated by U.S. national laboratories to inform each other of cyber attacks and threats.
