MIT issued the report, "The Future of the Electric Grid – An Interdisciplinary MIT Study." Chapter 9 is "Data Communications, Cybersecurity, and Information Privacy." According to the report, the U.S. should implement standards to reduce the risk of cyber attacks on the electricity grid and should designate one agency responsible for overseeing grid cybersecurity. I had an opportunity to both read Chapter 9 and discuss the section with the author Jerrold Gorchow.
