Protecting the electric distribution grid from cyberattacks is vitally important, and largely overlooked. That needs to quickly change and a good place for some answers is New Jersey. After Superstorm Sandy pummeled the state in 2012, there was a concerted effort to protect the state from power outages. This culminated in the first statewide standards for cyber protection in 2016. Unfortunately, those efforts seem to have languished and other states have done much less. This presents a dangerous and unacceptable risk. Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler has written an analysis for POWER Magazine about this topic here.
