Grids designed years ago strain to adopt modern information and communications technology. IT and OT converge. Compliance burdens increase. And the lights must stay on. Utilities need security.

UTC helps its member utilities build holistic security programs:

  • People are often your first and last line of defense. Inspire and educate them!
  • Hardware is vital to protect your infrastructure. Do you know your supply chain?
  • Software is incredibly sophisticated but must be installed and managed correctly.

UTC services, education programs, member programs, and resources help pave your way to “secure”.
