A framework for Electric Power Utility (EPU) operators to manage the response to a cyber-initiated threat to their critical infrastructure
Cyberspace is the collection of computer networks utilizing a variety of wired and wireless connections, a multitude of protocols, and devices ranging from host machines to intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). EPU operators do not have sufficient tools to respond to a serious cyber-initiated threat to their critical infrastructure.
A framework for tool development is needed. Such a framework must provide the capability to receive, store, model, retrieve and send cyberspace information to all system components. Implementation of the framework must receive real-time information from various network components and operational overlay sources. The object is to automate the response to a cyberinitiated threat and provide sufficient oversight information to manage the response by measuring, quantifying, and visualizing the situation and response options.
