With the increasing threats, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has been managing cybersecurity standards for power systems, but investor-owned utilities operate outside the jurisdiction of the FERC, leaving them on their own to manage and fund cybersecurity threats. We’ll help you be sure your energy and utilities operation is in FERC compliance, regardless of whether it is managed by the FERC.
Putting utilities online and transmitting information across cities and towns opens up a larger threat surface, putting critical information and data at risk. Everything from automated bill pay to metering for parking can be compromised, making it critical to manage security for FERC compliance across all energy and utility services.
If an energy organization or other utility is attacked, it could drastically compromise the integrity of the system’s performance. Attackers can cause a utility to malfunction, overheat, or worse, which could result in a potentially life-threatening incident. Meet FERC mandates and ensure utilities are protected.
There is a lot of demand placed on energy utilities, which can mean there is not enough security to cover the need. IBM reports that ransomware has risen by more than 250% and damages are expected to exceed $5 billion by the end of 2020. Keep the grid secure from threats.
DirectDefense will help you achieve FERC compliance and close the cybersecurity gaps in your energy utility.
