Smart Grid Cyber Security Training

 

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

To meet the current energy demand, Increase energy efficiency, reduce carbon footprint and to Effectively utilize devices of modern technology, we need to upgrade our electrical grid is not a smart grid. The smart grid is an electrical system That uses information technology, cyber-secure communication technologies and computational intelligence in an integrated fashion across electricity generation, transmission, Substations, distribution and consumption to Achieve a system Which is clean, safe, secure, reliable, resilient , efficient and sustainable. Major threat to this transformation is cyber-attacks and information security. This address this issue of The UWI Smart Grid team is going to organize a Smart Grid Cyber ​​Security Training at the UWI St. Augustine Campus.

 

TRAINING OBJECTIVES:

Main objective of this training program to create local expertise ie capacity building in the area of ​​smart grid technology. The training will Provide detailed information about smart power systems, recent technologies toward the smart grids, potential threats and vulnerabilities in smart grids and security assessment in smart grids in order to advance the knowledge of the participants the the the the the the the the the the the about cyber security in smart grids. Participants will be trained to IDENTIFY the potential threats in smart grids, how to detect threats in the smart grid components dry as SCADA systems, customer side, transmission and distribution levels.
