ScottMadden Reviews Utility of the Future Implications on Cybersecurity

April 18, 2016

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, has released a report to provide a review of utility of the future implications on cybersecurity, focusing on New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV).

This article presents the growing threat of cybersecurity issues for the energy industry, highlighting the effort in New York to support REV proceedings as a representative case for states at the forefront of grid modernization.

“A combination of technology, operational, and regulatory developments is leading to increased interconnectivity and data exchange within energy utilities, providing far-reaching opportunities. Unfortunately, these developments can also expose utilities to cyber risks,” said Jon Kerner, partner and information technology practice leader at ScottMadden. “New York’s REV provides an example of these opportunities and the associated risks that need to be addressed.”

ScottMadden has undertaken numerous consulting projects in the management and governance of cybersecurity for energy companies throughout North America. We have assisted utilities with responding to New York’s REV, and leveraging institutional knowledge, our cybersecurity experts have helped clients to achieve their cybersecurity goals.
