Senate passes cybersecurity bill to decrease grid digitization, move toward manual control
  • The U.S. Senate on June 27 passed a bipartisan cybersecurity bill that will study ways to replace automated systems with low-tech redundancies to protect the country’s electric grid from hackers.
  • The Securing Energy Infrastructure Act (SEIA) establishes a two-year pilot program to identify new classes of security vulnerabilities and to research and test solutions, including “analog and nondigital control systems.” The U.S. Department of Energy would be required to report back to Congress on its findings.
  • The SEIA legislation was included in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. A companion bill has been introduced by bipartisan sponsors in the House of Representatives.
