NYU Tandon team secures $1.94 million to protect power grid

NYU Tandon researchers Farshad Khorrami, Prashanth Krishnamurthy, and Ramesh Karri, director of the Center for Cybersecurity, received $1.94 million for their project from the U.S. Department of Energy, with matching support from NYU bringing the total to around $2.8 million. The strategic project aims to advance anomaly detection, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and physics-based analytics to strengthen the security of next-generation energy systems, which include components placed in substations to detect cyber intrusions more quickly and automatically block access to control functions.
