Smart Grid Cybersecurity Training Programs

Smart Grid Cybersecurity training programs,  courses, seminars, certifications and education by TONEX  (for complete list of programs CLICK HERE) address not only deliberate and intentional attacks, such as from disgruntled employees, external partners, industrial espionage, and terrorists, but also inadvertent organizations of the information infrastructure due to user errors, system errors, equipment failures, control errors, and natural disasters. Smart Grid cyber and physical security are critical high priorities for electric power utilities and Smart Grid Cybersecurity trainng courses, seminars, certifications and education will provide foundational cybersecurity guidance, cybersecurity reviews of standards and requirements, best practices, lessons learned and  cross-cutting issues of cybersecurity in the smart grid including privacy, policies, measures, procedures, and resiliency in the electric smart grid.

Learn how Smart Grid technologies can improve the reliability, availability, security, and efficiency of the electrical grid. Intelligent and smart devices can automatically adjust to changing conditions to prevent blackouts and increase capacity.

Learn how to protect and respond to cybersecurity critical events by analyzing common, risk-based approaches to cybersecurity.
