How to receive government funding for cybersecurity upgrades - eBookThere is no better time than the present to invest in upgrading your cybersecurity infrastructure. Whether you are a bulk power utility, subject to FERC regulations, or a Municipality or Coop, there are financial incentives available today.
The recent U.S. Critical Infrastructure Bill is offering funding in the form of state grants, while FERC is also offering financial incentives to bulk power utilities who invest in strengthening their cybersecurity posture now, before requirements become mandated. So really the question is, can you afford NOT to invest in cybersecurity in the current landscape?
