Overview

Transportation is becoming increasingly interdependent with the electric grid.  Vehicle manufacturers are increasingly focusing on electric vehicles and public, as well as at home, charging stations.  Vehicle to grid (V2G) technology, also known as vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) technology, is developing in hopes of enabling electric vehicle batteries to give back energy to the electric grid.  While these are encouraging steps from a green energy perspective, they raise concerns about the cybersecurity of the electric grid and what needs to be done to secure the grid from the potential cyber vulnerabilities these technologies could represent.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • The evolution of the “smart grid” (10 minutes)
  • How electric vehicles and charging stations will interact with the grid (10 minutes)
  • The potential impact of V2G technology and electric vehicles exchanging power and data with the grid (10 minutes)
  • Concerns about potential threats to the grid from these technologies (10 minutes)
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (15 minutes)
  • Potential data privacy issues (5 minutes)

  • Gail Gottehrer, Law Office of Gail Gottehrer LLC
  • Leeza Garber, Leeza Garber Esq. Consulting; The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
