Last week I presented the results of our latest study entitled, "The State of IT Security: A Study of Utilities and Energy Companies." Sponsored by Q1 Labs, this research revealed that utilities and energy companies in our study are more concerned about preventing downtime that stopping a cyber attack.  In addition, a majority of respondents said that compliance with standards such as NERC CIP is not a top priority.  Most surprisingly, only 16 percent of respondents believe that their organization's existing controls are designed to protect against exploits and attacks through the smart grid.  For more information about this study, please contact research@ponemon.org.
