IEEE Power Engineering Society
Power System Communications Committee (PSCC)
Development of Recommended Practices,
educational material, and other information related to the
assessment of information security risks in power system operations.
Purpose: Information security has become increasingly important in power system operations. Although security measures have been developed in the broader communications industry and standardization work is currently underway for security in power system communications protocols, very little effort has been undertaken on how to assess security risks in power system operations, and therefore what security measures need to be implemented. Therefore, the purpose of this Working Group will be to develop methods by which the information security risks can be assessed by utilities. These efforts will be closely coordinated with the on-going work on security standards for power system communications in the IEC TC57 WG15, the on-going work on recommended practices for security solutions in IEEE SCC36, the IEEE PES SCC TF on Electronic Security in IEEE PES Standards, and other security industry efforts.
Current Work: The next work will be to provide support on Key Management for IEC TC57 WG15.
