Abstract: Cyber Security is one of the hottest technology topics ensuring the safety and reliability of the Electrical Grid against cyber-attacks from hackers. This seminar will be a great opportunity for students, new grads, and engineers to have a general overview on cyber security issues and challenges for utilities in North America.
