Title:  Securing Smart Grid Cyber Infrastructure Against Emerging Threats

Date: 18 April 2018

Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Venue: Engineering Block E3-06-09, Faculty of Engineering, NUS Singapore


Smart Grid is a modernized power grid system empowered by ICT (information and communication technology). While it has improved timeliness and efficiency of power grid operation, it also raised concerns about cyber and cyber-physical security threats. In this talk we discuss security challenges in Smart Grid systems as well as recent real-world incidents. We then overview research efforts for ensuring trustworthy Smart Grid infrastructure.
