It’s deja vu all over again! As the utility grid becomes even more connected, and converges with communications networks to support new applications, including Internet of Things capabilities, new threats and security risks are emerging.

Privileged Task Automation (PTA), done properly, ensures that tasks which may previously been assigned privileged users (network operations teams, administrators, contractors, and vendors who need access to networks for maintenance and updates) are done with more accuracy and far less cost through scheduled software actions.
