Access White Paper

The Department of Homeland Security said it well….

Protecting the Power Grid - Substation Security

Most of us haven’t had to deal with not having electricity, internet, television, refrigeration or telephone so it’s often hard to imagine the chaos that might ensue if the power grid were to experience a major issue. Unfortunately, it is not a remote scenario, as the power grid has many vulnerabilities and threats.  This paper explores protecting the power grid.  It addresses the various aspects of NERC CIP014 and how intelligent video surveillance solutions can be deployed to address these vulnerabilities. 

This paper explores the ways surveillance technology can be implemented to protect the power grid and meet NERC requirements.  It is divided into five sections.  Each section aligns with the five areas of concerns outlined in NERC CIP014

  1. Detection of Attacks
  2. Response to Attacks
  3. Communication
  4. Deterrence and Delay
  5. Assessment of Attacks
