Cybersecurity of Infrastructure

Disruptions to the power grid have been known to leave millions of people in the dark throughout history. In the early 2000’s software automation companies began to provide system monitoring and control over the power grid in real time to prevent large scale blackouts.The advancement of real time monitoring of power systems and control made these devices vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Statler College researchers studying cybersecurity of the nation’s infrastructure focus on modeling, simulation and control utilizing state-of-the-art technologies such as artificial intelligence to protect the power grid in real-time.
