Forrester and other Analyst Firms on Smart Grid and Smart Grid Security
More IT security specialists will begin to understand smart grid security as analysis firms like Forrester Research join the bandwagon. Recent post here from Forrester's "Security & Risk" Professionals blog. An IT-based analysis firm that's much larger than Forrester and with more smart (they say, "intelligent") grid coverage, is found in Gartner Group. Lastly, Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) is an energy focused analysis firm, though as with Forrester and Gartner, Smart Grid seems to be a relatively new topic for them. Note: most of these co's only give you a taste of what they know and hold most of the potentially helpful detail behind their paid subscription firewalls. Repeat: potentially helpful.
