The SANS Institute announced on December 27 that the DHS National Cyber Security Division and Idaho National Laboratory have won the 2011U.S. National Cybersecurity Innovation Award for building cybersecurity skills needed to defend the power grid and other control systems.

The Controls Systems Security Program (CSSP) at DHS and Idaho National Laboratory have created a series of training programs for managerial and technical people in the industries using control systems (power, oil and gas, electrical, water, and several others.) These training programs are packed with up-to-date information on cyber threats and mitigations for vulnerabilities.
