ABSTRACT

Cybersecurity for Distributed Wind: What Manufacturers Need to Know   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "As a manufacturer of a distributed wind turbine or a component that is ultimately used in distributed wind applications, you are familiar with the basics of the equipment and its role in the context of a 'distributed energy resources (DER) transition.' You are also likely familiar with basic concepts of cybersecurity, either through work or everyday life, but you may not realize how it applies to your products. Until INL [Idaho National Laboratory] published the 'Cybersecurity Guide for Distributed Wind' [hyperlink] in 2021, few resources addressed the growing need to secure distributed wind systems. The Guide is a richly detailed resource outlining a distributed wind system's possible architectures, relevant standards, risk management strategies, and key recommendations for stakeholders. This document highlights the key actionable insights from the Guide that manufacturers can use to quickly develop their cybersecurity strategy."
