Lorie Wigle: Weaving a strong smart grid

About this talk: Integrating disparate national electricity systems into a smart grid allows us to integrate renewable energy, be more efficient, and to empower consumers to use power wisely. But as we add communications and intelligence to these systems, we introduce a vulnerability into it as well. Lorie Wigle outlines a new project to protect these complex and vital grids from attack.
