How can smart grids be protected?

What are the biggest threats to countries’ smart infrastructure?

Protecting IoT networks is a matter of public safety. Hackers could hijack smart grids used for electricity, water or transport, and turn these against citizens and the government.

The report discusses what steps organisations need to take to protect smart grids: understanding the environment, analysis of risks, and creating a comprehensive strategy to deal with concerns.
