Dtex: Security and Protection for Electric Utilities

Dtex: Security and Protection for Electric Utilities

On December 23, 2015, a Ukrainian regional electricity distribution company reported service outages. The outages were caused by a coordinated cyber attack on more than 30 substations across three distribution entities affecting 225,000 customers. Ukrainian news media reported that a foreign attacker remotely controlled the SCADA distribution management system. The Ukrainian attack is the first publicly acknowledged incident to result in power outages.

On March 18, 2016, the SANS Industrial Control Systems team and the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) jointly published “Analysis of the Cyber Attack on the Ukrainian Power Grid: Defense Use Case.” The report provides a consolidated list of the technical components used by the attackers.
