Twelve of ABB ’s utility partners have formed a consortium spanning two continents to privately fund research and testing into securing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that protect the nation’s electric grid.
“The formation of this consortium demonstrates the importance we have placed on cyber security,” said Stephen Diebold, manager real-time systems at KCP&L and chairman of the consortium.
ABB was the first SCADA vendor to partner with the Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability through its National SCADA Test Bed program presence at INL. Work began in 2003 to perform cyber security assessments for ABB network manager SCADA/EMS product.
