Cyber and physical attacks on America’s power system are at their highest level in at least a decade, posing a risk to reliable electricity. The good news is that all hands are on deck when it comes to preparing for, guarding against, and responding to these threats. We check in with Manny Cancel, who leads the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC), which brings together industry, government, and other stakeholders to safeguard the system and keep the lights on. He shares the latest threat landscape, what the electric sector and government are doing, and what individuals can do to protect not just their own digital property but also the electric grid.
“These adversaries are very sophisticated. They pivot, they change, they’re persistent. So maintaining our awareness about that collectively as a sector is important.”MANNY CANCEL, NERC, E-ISAC
