One nonprofit group says that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission hasn’t done enough to protect the bulk power grid. The New Hampshire-based group, called the Foundation for Resilient Societies, wants utilities to protect industrial control systems from cybersecurity threats over the Internet.
On Friday, that group sent a letter to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee urging it to secure commitments from nominees Norman Bay and Cheryl LaFleur that they’ll be tough on cybersecurity, reports Politico. The Senate will vote Tuesday to confirm the nominees, who are currently serving on the commission.
