The NCGR recently published an informative report containing 9 recommendations to Congress to improve grid resilience. The following excerpt offers plenty of motive for what needs to change from today's posture:
standards can even pose a risk of perverse incentives for security initiatives: when IT personnel are more afraid of auditors than they are of adversaries, cybersecurity operations can become complacent and performative, a series of box-ticking exercises rather than the vigilant defense of systems against motivated and clever adversaries. In such cases, collaborative approaches to standards as tools to improve coordination and best practices—the model used by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), which promulgates voluntary standards through consensus-based processes— can be a preferable approach.
I agree with the NCGR report and look forward to supporting their efforts through active engagement.
