Cybersecurity is critically important for our members. We support reasonable threat-based standards governing the security of the bulk electric system, and we’re working hard to secure our systems from cyber threats. Electric cooperatives are at the forefront of cyber security by establishing robust protective measures. These risk management measures are designed to protect the cooperative information. Working closely with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), department of Energy and Homeland Security maintain a strong defense against malicious cyber-attacks.
