The latest resilience news from around the world

Study on US electric grid resiliency finds that metrics are missingĀ 

Cost recovery for electric sector cybersecurity investments and development of resilience metrics to gauge the industry's progress are two of several recommendations in a new study by researchers. The researchers recently briefed the Critical Infrastructure Committee of the US National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) on the findings of the six-month study of electric grid security.

Conducted for Protect Our Power by the law school's Institute for Energy and the Environment (IEE), the study recommends that state utility commissions exercise their authority to increase the flow of confidential information regarding vulnerabilities and best practices. It also identifies the diversity of regulatory approaches to cyber security regulation by utility commissions across the country as a concern that warrants attention and improvement.

The briefing to NARUC on the study's key findings occurred on the opening day of the NARUC Winter Policy Summit. The study will be finalized over the next several weeks and is expected to be released officially in early March.
