People listen when the National Security Agency and Homeland Security confirm that the national power grid is vulnerable. The threat of a cyberattack shutting down the national electric grid is real, and utility companies are beefing up security measures to keep the lights on and the heat running for households and businesses.
Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association avoids this risk to its power supplies by tracking security threats in real time with the Vectra X-series platform. “Cyberattacks are always a concern from a security perspective,” says Dave Buffo, Tri-State senior IT security administrator. “Vectra gives us visibility into our networks, so we can monitor our internal hosts and address any security issues in real-time.”
