Course Description

The smart grid security training course will teach you the important aspects of cyber security in smart grids. The training consists of detailed information about modern power systems, recent technologies toward the smart grids, potential threats and vulnerabilities in smart grids and security assessment in smart grids in order to advance the knowledge of audience about the cyber security in smart grids. Upon the completion of the training, you will learn how to prevent the threats at the first hand. Moreover, you will be trained to identify the potential threats in smart grids, how to detect the threats in smart grid components such as SCADA systems, customer side, transmission and distribution levels.

Smart grid security training course simply teaches you the modern transmission and distribution system reliability and efficiency, how the generation plants can be faced with threats and necessity of secure electricity infrastructure. By taking this course, you will learn the digital information technology and control which will result in a high efficiency smart grid technology. Moreover, the cyber security problem will be formulated in smart grids and communication issues will be introduced. After introducing the threats, a proper action should be designed in response to a threat or recovery actions after a threat. This course will also help you to understand the concept of risk in smart grids, and effect of cascading failure in security, concept of actors, interactions between actors, security in communications and loss of integrity.
