Smart Grid Vulnerabilities
• Cyber:
- Existing control systems were designed for use with proprietary,
stand‐alone communications networks

- Numerous types of equipment and protocols are used

- More than 90% of successful cyber attacks take advantage of 
known vulnerabilities and misconfigured operating systems, 
servers, and network devices

- Possible effects of attacks:
1) Loss of load
2) Loss of information
3) Economic loss
4) Equipment damage
