<b>Building an Effective Security Program for Distributed Energy Resources and Systems</b> <p><b>Build a critical and effective security program for DERs</b><p><i>Building an Effective Security Program for Distributed Energy Resources and Systems</i> requires a unified approach to establishing a critical security program for DER systems and Smart Grid applications. The methodology provided integrates systems security engineering principles, techniques, standards, and best practices.<p>This publication introduces engineers on the design, implementation, and maintenance of a security program for distributed energy resources (DERs), smart grid, and industrial control systems. It provides security professionals with understanding the specific requirements of industrial control systems and real-time constrained applications for power systems. This book:<ul><li>Describes the cybersecurity needs for DERs and power grid as critical infrastructure</li><li>Introduces the information security principles to assess and manage the security and privacy risks of the emerging Smart Grid technologies</li><li>Outlines the functions of the security program as well as the scope and differences between traditional IT system security requirements and those required for industrial control systems such as SCADA systems</li><li>Offers a full array of resources— cybersecurity concepts, frameworks, and emerging trends</li></ul><p>Security Professionals and Engineers can use <i>Building an Effective Security Program for Distributed Energy Resources and Systems</i> as a reliable resource that is dedicated to the essential topic of security for distributed energy resources and power grids. They will find standards, guidelines, and recommendations from standards organizations, such as ISO, IEC, NIST, IEEE, ENISA, ISA, ISACA, and ISF, conveniently included for reference within chapters.
