Securing Logical Interfaces in a High Penetration DER Environment Workshop

When:  Mar 16, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM (ET)

***Please note new workshop date is Tuesday, Mar 16, 2021***

The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) Cybersecurity Working Group is engaging smart grid cybersecurity practitioners to gather information in support of the development of case studies and/or risk profiles relating to a subset of Logical Interface Categories defined in NISTIR 7628r1 in environments with a high DER penetration.

In an information sharing and gathering workshop hosted by SEPA’s Cybersecurity Working Group, workshop participants will discuss the specifics and several aspects of Logical Interface Categories six, nine and sixteen in NISTIR 7628r1.

Participants will discuss their usage in the electric power sector by utilities and solution providers, and provide feedback about the interfaces’ current and potential usage. The group will also discuss any recent developments that could change the role(s) of those Logical Interface Categories.

The Logical Interface Categories being discussed at the workshop are:

Logical Interface Category Six: Interfaces between control systems in different organizations, for example, between an RTO/ISO EMS and a utility energy management system

Logical Interface Category Nine: Interfaces with B2B connections between systems usually involving financial or market transactions, for example, between a Retail aggregator and an Energy Clearinghouse

Logical Interface Category Sixteen: Interfaces between external systems and the customer site, for example, between Third Party and HAN Gateway, between ESP and DER, or between Customer and CIS Web site.

Workshop participants who RSVP will receive pre-meeting materials to prepare for the discussion.
