Cyber-Resilience of the Power Grid

Workshop, Tuesday, April 30

Group of faculty listening and standing to someone speak

The resilience and cybersecurity of the power grid are of paramount importance. Given the potential consequences of a successful cyberattack on the grid, proactive measures are essential to mitigate these risks effectively. Traditional cybersecurity methods such as firewalls, access controls, and antivirus software have limitations when applied to power systems. These approaches tend to be reactive, focusing on known threats and vulnerabilities. Furthermore, they often lack real-time insight into the dynamic behavior of the grid. This is where digital twins and machine learning can play a transformative role.
