The Energy industry is experiencing the most significant change in 100 years. Analysts expect worldwide investments of US$ 378 Billion by 2030 in Smart Grid deployments which will help to better manage demand response and energy efficiency.  As the Smart Grid accelerates the utilization of IT and IP Networking technologies, new challenges arise in form of Security risks and the Data explosion.  The threat landscape is evolving rapidly and poses a lot of risks against this critical infrastructure that can impact the economy of entire countries.
