Are You Cyber Aware?

A CyberSecurity Workshop for Electric Utilities

In the first installment of Seven States’ cyber security awareness series in 2020, we focused on the identify function of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework and introduced free tools from the American Public Power Association (APPA) and National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) that local power companies can use to perform cyber security assessments.


In PART II, we focused on the detect and protect functions of the cyber security framework. During our March 2022 webinar, experts from Intuitive Research and Technologies, Huntsville Utilities, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and NRECA discussed their experience utilizing managed security service providers and efforts underway to establish an LPC-focused shared security service in our region.

Downloadable Self-Assessment Tools
APPA’s Scorecard and NRECA’s RC3 Cybersecurity Self-Assessment are tools designed to support your cybersecurity strategy. Presented together for the first time, Seven States members have exclusive access to both tools.
