The question of how to best keep data secure is essential to protecting the utility’s revenue and reputation, but in a complex world encryption from meter to head-end system is only part of the answer.
Being a power utility used to be relatively simple: provide electricity and light up the world. Today, the power utility operates in an increasingly complex world – a world in which data is the backbone of the business. As the AMI system becomes more and more entangled with other networks and computer systems, more aspects than just encryption need to be considered if utilities want to be sure they have a secure system. One major challenge lies in ensuring that people and organizational processes are also aligned.
In this webinar, we take a closer look at the questions any utility needs to ask itself to ensure an acceptable level of data security.
