Advances in Cyber Security for Electric Utilities: WG15 & Black Hat

As a passionate champion for secure-by-design power grid systems, I’ve been part of WG15, the group defining IEC 62351 standards to enable such systems, for years.

If you’d like to learn about the future of cyber security for electric utilities, I urge you to read this article. It also provides a sneak peek into our related (and groundbreaking!) talk about power system security at Black Hat USA 2019.

IEC 62351 Standards for Securing Power System Communications

IEC 62351 Standards for Securing Power System Communications

To help counter the growing concern about cyberattacks aiming to disrupt power systems, industrial experts have been working together in WG15. This group, part of IEC, is defining the standards known as IEC 62351, for secure-by-design power grids.

As a member of WG 15 since 2015, I thought it might be helpful to inform you about these standards and provide an update on their status.

Last week Nozomi Networks had the privilege of hosting the first WG15 meeting of 2017. This group is responsible for establishing end-to-end cyber security standards for the world’s power system communication protocols. Read on to learn more about WG15 and how we advanced standards for encrypted communications for the power grids of the future.
