UTILITIES CYBERSECURITY

Members of Thompson Coburn’s Utilities practice group are well-versed in matters related to compliance with and enforcement of national reliability standards for the electric utility sector, including those addressing cybersecurity. As the standards focused on Critical Infrastructure Protection or “CIP” evolve and as regulators devote increased attention to physical security matters, we can provide advice and guidance to our utility clients regarding this changing regulatory landscape. Beyond the regulatory compliance issues for infrastructure protection, our attorneys have experience in counseling clients regarding data protection, privacy, insurance, and related litigation matters that are of equal concern to the utility industry.
