EnerNex announces the latest deliverables in a series of Smart Grid related Cyber Security documents providing prescriptive, actionable guidance for utilities and vendors implementing Smart Grid systems.

The documents, also referred to as Cyber Security Profiles, are part of the 2010 phase of the Advanced Security Acceleration Project for the Smart Grid (ASAP-SG) to accelerate the development of security requirements and standards for the electric utility industry.

EnerNex, along with the utilities of the Open Smart Grid Subcommittee of the UCA International Users Group in collaboration with the US Department of Energy (DOE), the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and other interested parties, joined to form ASAP-SG.

ASAP-SG provides all electric utilities uniform access to a greater body of knowledge and expertise than would otherwise be available to any one utility. Currently the team has begun development on a Wide Area Management, Protection and Control Security Profile that includes SynchroPhasors.
