New effort aims att securing critical infrastructure computers
Wednesday - 1/11/2012, 9:16am EST
The Energy and Homeland Security departments will develop a model to help identify how secure the electric grid is from cyber threats. The initiative is called the Electric Sector Cybersecurity Risk Maturity Model Pilot.
DHS and DoE will also test that model with as many as a dozen utilities. The goal is better understanding their strengths and weaknesses. The agencies say data from maturity model tests will help inform investment planning, research and development, and enhance public-private partnership efforts to secure critical infrastructure.
