Critical Infrastructure Protection for the Electric Power Industry
Bring enhanced security to the electric power industry
In an electric transmission and distribution network, personnel access and safety must be tightly controlled while allowing movement within authorized areas.
On April 16, 2013, an armed gunman destroyed 17 electrical transformers at the PG&E Metcalf Transmission Substation in California. The damage to the substation was significant — over $15 million dollars.
After this attack, the federal government mandated changes be made. The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards require all electric utilities to have a security plan and program in place to monitor and manage physical access to protect critical infrastructure and cyber systems.
In this new case study, read how one director of security for a large utility headquartered in the Midwest secured his infrastructure with 4,000-plus locations in his transmission environment. Also, you will learn about the latest technology in securing electric power operations.
