About the Event

Effective physical security at substations has never been more important. With today’s security practices, and the breadth of information available online, the electric grid is a soft target. Acts of sabotage or insider actions could blackout large areas of the power grid in critical areas.

Prescient has developed a new approach to strengthen the physical security of substations: SHIELDR (Strategically Harden, Isolate, Examine on Location, Duplicate, React and Recover). The SHIELDR method blends substation physical security requirements with those at nuclear power plants and at US embassies in foreign countries to create an updated approach to substation security.

In this 45 minute webinar, learn about the principles of the SHIELDR approach and recommended updates to enhance the effectiveness of physical security at substations. You’ll also learn how Prescient helps electric utilities identify and implement prudent, location specific updates to physical security.

Presenter: Tony Sleva, PE, LSM-IEEE, President of Prescient Transmission Systems.
