The Metcalf incident has dramatically changed the transmission of electricity in the United States. It's apparent now the electric utility industry is no longer able to decide an acceptable level of risk for its critical transmission stations. The writing was clear on the wall when the FERC approved NERC's CIP-014 Physical Security Standard, which requires enhanced reliability or physical security protection for the nation's most critical transmission facilities and operation centers.
Technology in many sectors is rapidly changing in the 21st Century and the electric utility industry must take advantage of these cutting-edge technologies for protection. This presentation by expert speaker Allan Wick will introduce you to many of the newest technologies for substation surveillance, monitoring and intrusion detection, as well as the shielding and protection of a station's most critical components to satisfy the standard requirements. To make the information less daunting to you, this presentation will distil those down to the major technologies that should be deployed in critical substations.
