The Smart Grid will not reach its full capabilities if it is vulnerable to malicious outside threats such as hackers and cyber-terrorists, as well as potential natural disasters. This will require a new level of protection and security that was not necessary in the 20th century but is tantamount for reliability and success in the 21st century. This fifth podcast in the Smarter Grid series examines the state of cyber-security and physical security for the Smart Grid, reliability standards, and what challenges lie ahead to make sure the proper protections are in place and functioning.
