CRISP: Two Cooperative’s Experiences

Presentation: Hanson

The department of energy cyber risk information sharing program (CRISP) is a highly effective cybersecurity sensor network that is designed to detect nation-state cyber attacks. Used by most of the very large investor-owned utilities, the historical costs of participation have largely precluded cooperatives from participating in this program.

Hear from two cooperatives who joined together for CRISP and learn about their experiences in this unique program.
