Utilities are more vulnerable than ever to cyberattacks. Partly because of the batteries used to bring enhanced reliability to the grid.
But those same batteries introduce vulnerabilities that need to be addressed in seconds instead of days. The answer isn’t to forego the digital innovation enabled by batteries. The benefits to utility companies are too great for that. But given the added vulnerability of grid batteries, leading utilities will be ones that act now to shore up security—gaining real-time insight into operations. Insight that helps them prevent or minimize cyberattacks.
