In the shadow of your grid data lurks the high cost of a security or compliance failure
GRIDEON‘s mission is to provide secure, compliant and efficient grid data collaboration, integration and management
For the benefit of the utility ecosystem
What is secure grid data exchange?
Simplified and standardized grid communications that reduce cyber-security exposures, improve resiliency, and maximize compliance. It eliminates the need for expensive private communications networks and outdated point-to-point systems and improved operational efficiency of the modern grid value chain with more DERs and fewer CO2 emissions.
What is GRIDEON?
It’s a service…GRIDEON is an open-source suite of easy to use cloudbased Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, technologies, enablement and support services, and standards that provide the full set of capabilities required to instantiate any type of secure grid data exchange. It efficiently ensures secure and compliant grid data exchange among electric ecosystem participants encompassing the entire electric value chain from generation to consumers (prosumers) spanning business and real-time operations.
GridBright has developed GRIDEON under a DOE ARPA-E (arpa-e.energy.gov) award in collaboration with a team of cybersecurity and utility industry experts from BetterGrids Foundation (www.Bettergrids.org), Midcontinent Independent System Operator (misoenergy.org), and Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative (mcecoop.com). Over 40 organizations across the grid value chain have contributed to defining the requirements for GRIDEON.
Why it matters
88% of enterprises have large numbers of file folders open to everyone
63% of data breaches are caused by employee and contractor negligence
3X increase in size of large NERC fines in the last year. Large fines now >$10M
2.71X the cost of mitigating non-compliance vs proactively managing compliance
$136 per breached record liability cost in energy sector with 3 actions — robust encryption, DLP and compliance
1 in 3 breaches lead to job loss >40% of them senior non-IT and C level executives
GRIDEON = Innovation the industry needs
In the cloud
Cloud computing is now well established as a core technology for this and future computing eras
the idea that at appropriate intervals, counterparties to data exchanges need to be revalidated across all the elements that permitted them to exchange initially
In any time
Data exchanges occur across various time domains
