Excerpt from statements made by PUC Chairman Gladys Brown at yesterday’s Public Meeting regarding October being recognized by the Commission and PA Governor Tom Wolf as Cybersecurity Awareness Month in Pennsylvania.

“Today we live in a world that is more connected than ever before. The internet touches almost all aspects of everyone’s daily life, whether we realize it or not – and that means individuals who seek to misuse those connections can reach further and deeper than many of us realize. Cybersecurity affects all of us – every industry, every country, every agency and every consumer. The PUC works with all of our regulated utilities on an all-hazards approach to security – both physical and cybersecurity. Our work with utilities is aimed at the security of utility data and the security of utility systems.”
