DER Cybersecurity: Investigating the Challenges of Securing IIoT

The need for proactive cybersecurity defense mechanisms is a key concern in the energy sector as distributed energy resources (DERs) and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) introduce new connections and expand the attack surface of traditional energy generation and distribution networks.

In this session, participants will learn how the NIST NCCoE is gearing up to explore various scenarios in which information exchanges among commercial and utility DERs and electric distribution grid operations can be protected from cybersecurity compromises. Their work – informed by a highly-engaged community of thought leaders in the energy industry, cybersecurity community, government, and academia – will result in an open, practical, and standards-based proof-of-concept of cybersecurity capabilities demonstrating data integrity and malware prevention, detection, and mitigation in DER environments.
