The Electric Grid Cybersecurity Initiative, a joint effort of BPC’s Energy and Homeland Security Projects, will develop recommendations for how multiple government agencies and private companies can protect the North American electric grid from cyber attacks. The initiative will consider how to allocate responsibility for cyber attack prevention and response, facilitate the sharing of intelligence about cyber threats and vulnerabilities with electric power companies, and ensure appropriate privacy protections for customer data.
The three co-chairs of BPC’s Electric Grid Cybersecurity Initiative will release a white paper in early 2014 with recommendations for policy makers. In addition, BPC held a public workshop in August 2013 with the co-chairs, advisory group, and other relevant experts to explore the topics discussed above and to get further input and advice.
