Welcome Danish Saleem: Cybersecurity Professional at NREL and New Expert in the Digital Utility Community - [an Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Expert Interview]
- Jun 1, 2020 3:29 pm GMT
In recent years, the digital utility sphere has been moving at an undeniably breakneck speed. Technology and programs on the grid are getting smarter, and high-tech sensors are being connected throughout the utility sector. These technological tools and strategies enable greater data-backed decisions and customer-focused strategies, but they come with the associated need for increased cybersecurity. Grid cybersecurity professionals constantly need to stay multiple steps ahead of any potential bad actor, and that’s why this field has seen immense focus and prioritization.
This focus on cybersecurity in the energy industry extends to the National Lab system of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), including the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Recently, Energy Central was lucky enough to have Danish Saleem, Senior Cybersecurity Systems Researcher at NREL join the community as the newest expert in the Digital Utility Community. Danish adds a great amount of experience and perspective to our ever-growing Network of Experts at Energy Central, and he was kind enough to agree to introduce himself further by taking part in an interview as a part of our Energy Central Power Perspective ‘Welcome New Expert Interview Series’:
