CPUC's Villarreal is the Real Deal for Grid Security from the US States' Perspective
From cybersecurity to privacy, the Green Button and security metrics, this recent deck from the California Public Utility Commission's (CPUC's) Chris Villarreal covers the entire grid security waterfront from a (very big) state's point of view.
This is well worth your time if you're a regulator in another state, a regulated entity in any state, or you just want to get a better feel for the way this process is evolving.
Note links on last slide to excellent CPUC security white paper by Chris and his security savvy colleagues, Liza Malashenko and J. David Erickson, and to NARUC's excellent "Cybersecurity for State Regulators 2.0" guide. There are other states upping their cybersecurity game as well, but California and Texas have been the two trailblazers. Of that there is no doubt.
