When it comes to electric utilities, it’s clear that hackers are getting more aggressive, both in the frequency and intensity of their attacks.
In the past year, hackers were able to compromise one of Ireland’s power grids, installing software that had the ability to intercept and translate encrypted communications. Meanwhile, more than half of US power plants experienced a hack with an attempt to take control of, or destroy, their equipment.
The risk of attack continues to grow. While new connected devices, such as smart meters, deliver great benefits—they also introduce new vulnerabilities to be exploited.
