ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently sponsored and presented at Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) Strategic Issues Roundtable in San Diego, CA. This meeting provided a unique opportunity to discuss major electric power industry trends and how cyber security is playing an increasingly important role within the industry.
How do you build the foundation for a sustainable cyber security program? Luke Martin, director at ScottMadden, joined forces with Ann Goza, FHO director at Duke Energy, to present “Cyber Security Strategy.” This session provided lessons learned from the proactive measures Duke Energy’s FHO organization is taking to improve security and discussed how CIP compliance and cyber security practices are being embedded into day-to-day operations.
“Our view is that taking a strategic approach to cyber security requires identifying what cyber defenses you have in place now, where you have gaps, how you will build stronger defenses and layer controls, how success will be measured, and how you will get there,” explains Mr. Martin.
