KY Power Plants' Online Security To Be Assessed
The Kentucky Public Service Commission has been awarded a grant to study cyber risks at smaller electric utilities. The study will include between three and six cooperatives. It will assess the cyber risks to the cooperatives and how to mitigate the risks.
Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives president Bill Corum says the study will have far-reaching benefits for the state's smaller power suppliers. C.H. Guernsey & Co. has been selected to conduct the study. The grant money was awarded by the National Association of Utility Regulatory Commissioners, with funding from the Department of Energy. Kentucky's PSC has jurisdiction over 19 electric cooperatives in Kentucky.
