National SCADA Test Bed Program

Described by many as the greatest mechanical invention ever conceived, the nation’s electric power grid — with its massive transmission towers, multiple substations and millions of miles of power lines — criss-cross through out the United States and Canada providing continuous power to our citizens. This system and the digital components that operate it are reliable and efficient, but often lack sufficient security measures to protect them from new and emerging cyber threats.
