Cybersecurity enhances the security and reliability of country’s electric grid. Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability are the major keys to enhance the reliability and resilience of the nation's energy infrastructure. Cybersecurity of energy delivery systems is critical for protecting the energy infrastructure and the integral function. Energy Reliability designed the Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program to assist the energy sector asset owners (electric, oil, and gas) by developing cybersecurity solutions for energy delivery systems through integrated planning. Energy delivery systems are the backbone of energy sector. Cybersecurity is encouraged as to be reflexive.
The major role of Cybersecurity was explained well at Smart Grid conferences 2016
