Join us this month as Prof. Deepa Kundur, Chair of the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering, discusses how engineering is addressing the threat of cybersecurity attacks on our electrical grid. How secure is the most critical of our critical infrastructures — the power grid? This talk explores the challenges and potential strategies for ensuring a more secure and resilient power grid. As the power grid shifts to a smarter grid with increased cyber connectivity and automation, the task of its protection becomes especially daunting. In this talk, Professor Kundur will introduce modern cybersecurity challenges for the power grid, discuss strategies for smart grid protection that exploit inherent and coordinated cyber-physical synergies, and present a future outlook for the field.
Deepa Kundur (ElecE 9T3, ElecE MASc 9T5, ElecE PhD 9T9) currently serves as Professor and Chair of The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and as Director of the Centre for Power & Information in at the University of Toronto. Professor Kundur’s research interests lie at the interface of cyber security, signal processing and complex dynamical networks. Professor Kundur has participated on several editorial boards and currently serves on the Advisory Board of IEEE Spectrum. Professor Kundur’s research has received best paper recognitions at numerous venues including the 2015 IEEE Smart Grid Communications Conference, the 2015 IEEE Electrical Power. She has also been the recipient of teaching awards at both the University of Toronto and Texas A&M University. She is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering.
