Improving Electric Grid Cybersecurity with Cyber-Physical Analysis
Shamina Hossain-McKenzie (Sandia National Laboratories)
About this talk
Cyber attacks are rising against critical infrastructure systems and have serious implications for our national security. In addition, many interconnected systems are becoming increasingly cyber-physical due to modernization efforts. For example, the electric grid has rapidly evolved with smart grid technologies, wide-area monitoring capabilities, and advanced automation. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the impact of multi-hazard events such as cyber-attacks and extreme weather on these cyber-physical systems.
In this webinar, WiCyS strategic partner Sandia National Laboratories will discuss approaches for incorporating cyber-physical analysis in electric grid response and defense mechanisms for increased situational awareness, improved response, and resilience. This will include ongoing research and development overviews for cyber-physical anomaly detection, cyber-physical data fusion, cyber-physical mitigation deployment, and characterizing cyber-physical system interdependencies.
