Looking Back and Looking Forward on Smart Grid Cyber Security at GridWise 2010

As Mark Twain (or Hemingway, Cicero, Voltaire, Blaise Pascal or George Bernard Shaw) once said "If I had more time, I would have made it shorter." That's true of the 25-min audio that accompanies  - feel free to fast forward. But believe you'll find the content here interesting, and depending on your line of work vis a vis the Smart Grid, maybe even helpful.
There were several good questions and comments during the Q&A session that followed, but the one I appreciated most was that this wasn't the typical doom and gloom message that typifies many energy sector security presentations.  I count that as good news as that is a design objective. As we've said before, no good work gets done by people in the fetal position. And we've got plenty of work to do.

For more from GridWise here's a LINK to the organization's cyber security resources page. These are great people moving mountains as they advocate for Smart Grid progress. Highly recommend you give them your support and/or get involved if you haven't already.
