In 2021, Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives joined together to help each other improve their cybersecurity programs. Under the name RECAP, a Team of IT professionals conducts an independent assessment of a cooperative’s cybersecurity program using the RC3/Axio360 software. The results are cross-referenced to the Center for Internet Security (CIS) controls (v8), to generate a “Top 10” list of priorities. The Team has identified several “high priority” vulnerabilities identical to those that resulted in serious cybersecurity breaches at cooperatives around the country.
Eighteen of Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives have signed up to participate in the assessment process. If you have not yet taken advantage of this opportunity and would like more information, please contact Steve Savon at (614) 580-6011 firstname.lastname@example.org.
