4 October, 2019

CURRENT

The evening before Christmas Eve in 2015 saw a widespread blackout of the power grid across the Ukraine. We look at how a cyber-attack on electric utility companies in Europe, changed how cyber-security is regarded in control systems, forever.
In Causality Explored, (Premium ONLY) we dive into GOOSE as a messaging protocol in High Voltage Circuit Breaker protection, why it's important and why it's opened a door for hackers that didn't exist 20 years ago.
