The electric grid is one of man's oldest and largest machines, and while it's beginning to show it's age in some ways, it's also being modernized with sensors and advanced communications technologies at a rapid pace. In the wake of Stuxnet and more recently the powerful Shamoon attacks on energy companies in the Middle East, governments around the world seem to be waking up in unison to the scale of cyber threats facing their electric sectors, and the other critical national infrastructure systems that depend on it. This conversation will discuss the current state of security at a typical electric utility, some of the of new and emerging rules in place to govern security processes at utilities and beyond, and as Smart Meters have come to symbolize the Smart Grid moderation effort for many, some thoughts on consumer privacy and how it's being protected. In this podcast Caleb will be joined by Andy Bochman. As the Energy Security Leader at IBM, Andy works all aspects of cyber security, privacy and compliance facing US and international utilities. He's the founder and editor of the influential Smart Grid Security and DOD Energy blogs, and a frequent speaker, writer and adviser on topics at the intersection of grid modernization, privacy and cyber security.
