Imagine if the lights across America suddenly went dark, thanks to a hack attack on power grids. Cyber attacks on the electricity system are becoming more sophisticated and more common. The Bipartisan Policy Center asked experts in energy operations and national security to compile recommendations to strengthen grid cyber security. Curt Hebert is a former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission chairman and one of very few people that has done extensive research, publication, speeches and interviews on both infrastructure and cyber security with a deep understanding and experience in the energy fields.
The smart technologies have to make the business case from a financial point of view, but also from a security point of view.Curt also happens to be a rare bird in that he has served and regulated at the local, state and federal levels and served as Chairman in all regulatory capacities and done work internationally as well as being an attorney and second in command for a Fortune 250 company for a decade.
His experiences (regulatory, regulated, atty) have given him a prism to look through which allows clients to see a perspective that allows them to deliver energy that can be compelling to regulators, customers and shareholders (corporate). Making all three happy is challenging, but Curt has been down all 3 roads.
