Cybersecurity and Power System resilience for Industrial Control

Two new presentation topics have been accepted for the Industrial Control Cybersecurity Europe and USA conference this September and October, provided by Steve Brunasso, Manager of Cyber Security Burbank Water and Power.

Energy Operators can register two for the price one at the moment.

Advanced Control Network design and deployment for visible operations and cyber security assurance with software defined networks.
Control system networks have moved from traditional time division technologies such as SONET rings to Ethernet edges with Multi Protocol Labeling and Switching cores.  The next evolution is Software Defined Networking that can make the network dance with isolated virtual circuits while also providing full wire-speed fire walling, load balancing, packet manipulation and intrusion detection capabilities.  CWP has developed a monitoring network based upon SDN that will allow us to see all interactions on the network for both operations reliability and cyber detection capability. 

Integration of Operations Data and Command and Control messages to ensure cyber security and power system resilience.
CWP is building operational tools that integrate PMU measured power flow data, DNP3 SCADA messaging, and system power models to ensure that the grid is operating as expected and in a known state at all times.  Abnormal power flows with related SCADA commands may be operator error or cyber actors.  This system will detect events and potentially be able to reverse the attack and maintain power stability in future versions.
    - Power system operations models
    - SCADA command, control and data acquisition data
    - Phase measurement units
     - to provide a normal system awareness model for the entire power system
