With no staff and 'very little or no cybersecurity standards,' states ill-equipped to face threats

The annual membership directory of state utility regulators lists several hundred key staff members of the 50 state commissions. Not a single staff position in the 81 pages has "cybersecurity" in the title. While the vulnerability of the nation's high-voltage interstate grids attracts increasing concern and attention at the federal policy level, the ability of state commissions to oversee the cyber and physical security defenses of local distribution utilities varies greatly. With some exceptions, neither commissions nor utilities have the depth of security expertise to match their potential adversaries, experts and officials agree.
