Cyber Security for Power Utilities

As cyber-attacks have the potential to severely impact power grids, multi-layered protection is vital for securing the smart grid end-to-end. Compliance to regulations – i.e. NERC CIP, as well as standards that include NIST, IEC, and ISO, and preparing for security audits are forcing extensive changes in the overall utility security framework.

Nokia Smart Grid Communications solution is designed and tested with end-to-end security in mind. These solutions bring together best-in-class technology and services from Nokia’s certified security professionals to keep the grid secure.
