The Smart Grid brings greater benefits for utilities and customer
alike, however these benefits come at a cost from a security
perspective. Unlike the over-hyped messages we usually hear from the
media, the sky is NOT falling. However, just like any other
technology, the systems and devices that make up the Smart Grid will
have weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It is important for us to
understand these vulnerabilities, how they can be attacked, and what
we need to do to defend against those attacks.

This presentation will explore how the increased functionality and
complexity of the Smart Grid also increases the Smart Grid's attack
surface, or in other words, increases the ways attackers can
compromise the Smart Grid's new infrastructures, systems, and business
models. We'll discuss several specific attack avenues against the
Smart Grid and the recommendations we are making to utilities and
vendors to mitigating and blocking these attacks.
