With this realization, regulators are increasingly taking steps to ensure the energy sector can secure its most critical assets against cyberattacks. In this playbook from Network Perception, we take a closer look at:

  • Why cyberthreats multiply quickly
  • 3 principles to improve utility cyber resiliency
  • Why Austin Energy’s cyber resilience is one of the best in the industry
