Curt Hebert, a partner at Brunini, Grantham, Grower & Hewes, PLLC, serves as co-chair for the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Electric Grid Cybersecurity Initiative in Washington, D. C. The initiative released recommendations on how the government and industry can be prepared to protect electric grids against cyber attacks. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security collected information and the initiative including Hebert, and two other co-chairs, made recommendations regarding the information collected.
From the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Press Release, “Cyber attacks on key energy infrastructure, including the electricity system, are increasing in terms of frequency and sophistication. Electric grid failures are costly and have the potential to profoundly disrupt delivery of essential services, including communications, food, water, health care and emergency response. In light of these developments, BPC convened the Electric Grid Cybersecurity Initiative – a hybrid project of BPC’s Energy and Homeland Security Projects – to tackle these challenges.”
