IPKeys Power Partners launched a cooperative agreement with American Public Power Association (APPA) and Department of Energy (DOE) to provide cybersecurity monitoring services for up to 50 public power utilities in the United States.

As part of the collaboration, the parties agreed to share cyber incident notification reports developed involving public power utilities to the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC), Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) and/or other information sharing organizations provided that all parties agree to maintain the confidentiality of the information.

"APPA, through our cooperative agreement with the US Department of Energy, contracted with IPKeys Power Partners to subsidize the deployment of N-Dimension's N-Sensor technology at public power utilities," said Nathan Mitchell, senior director of cyber and physical security services, APPA. “We are pleased to kick off this pilot to further mature the cybersecurity programs of our members. We are excited to see public power utilities take the next step on monitoring cyber threats to critical electric infrastructure. This is in line with our efforts to foster a culture of cybersecurity at public power utilities starting with a self-assessment using our Cybersecurity Scorecard on to data driven benchmarking using commercial tools.”
