      Computing, Communications, Cyber Resilience, and the Future of the U.S. Electric Power System

      Computing, Communications, Cyber Resilience and the Future of the U.S. Electric Power System Computing, communications, and information technologies have become essential in the planning and operation of our nation’s electricity system, a trend that is expected to increase in the future.  How can the advantages of new technologies be realized while mitigating cyber security and resilience risks?  Join the National Academies’ Committee on the Future of Electric Power in the U.S. on November 1, 2019 for a discussion of how cyber security issues could shape electric power systems over the next 30 years.  This workshop will synthesize current efforts to increase the cyber resilience of the electric power sector and discuss fundamental tensions that underlie adoption of computing and communication technologies, for example between centralized and decentralized architectures and responsibilities, between simple and complex technologies and systems, and between compliance versus security cultures.   Learn more about the study and sign up for our mailing list at nas.edu/gridmod.  WEBCAST INSTRUCTIONS If you are unable to attend in person in Washington, DC, we invite you to register for our webcast.  Instructions for accessing the webcast will be made available on this page and emailed to registrants as the event approaches.
