Smart Grid Security in DC Update

This week's been a busy one for those of us at the SGS Blog and it's not over yet:
  1. Covered the CNA "Powering America's Defense: Energy and the Risks to National Security " report release event at the Newseum Monday morning - it was great and the "smart grid as energy security" theme was prominent
  2. Attended the FERC/NIST/EPRI interim standards development workshop in National Harbor, MD today.  Extremely well organized by EPRI's Erfan Ibrahim - it could have been herding cats, but instead it was a case study in how to get the most value out of 600 or so diverse but very talented participants
  3. Tomorrow my colleague Jack and I are off to brief Senate staffers on the current state of smart grid security, as well as hear them out on what they need next
Will keep you posted on the fruits of all of the above.
