Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the fourth of four articles on the testimony provided at FERC’s July 31 Technical Conference. Panel IV’s topic was “Addressing the Evolving Cybersecurity Threat”. The panelists addressed the steps that FERC, the industry, security agencies, and vendors should take in the face of increasingly effective cyber-attacks on the national infrastructures.

After assessing the Technical Conference Panel IV discussion, FERC will reconsider their regulatory approach to the evolving cyber security threat. In the interim, the Commission will rely on new standards to address newly identified forms of cyber-attack.
