Electric Power Systems Cyber Security: Power Substation Case Study

Published By EWICS

  • Published January 2006
  • 29 Page(s)

Towards the end of the 20th century electric power systems (EPSs) emerged as one of the most critical infrastructures in the sense that all other critical and vital infrastructures depend on reliable electricity supply. At the same time they are considered as the most vulnerable to physical and cyber attack. Information technology engineers and experts (in software engineering, information security, etc.) who deal with cyber security in critical infrastructures (also called electronic security in electric power systems) deal only with CIIP but they must at least to some extent understand also the nature of these infrastructures, possible consequences of security breaches, etc. However contemporary EPSs are very complex and highly technologically advanced systems, which appear to be sometimes underestimated by those outside the electric power sector.
