Cyber Security & Privacy

Prepare for an increasingly complex cyber and privacy landscape

Energy infrastructure, particularly the power grid, has become increasingly exposed to cyber attacks. If grid operators, utilities, and the federal government are unprepared, cyber incidents could disrupt energy services, damage highly specialized equipment, and threaten public health and safety. In addition, as the amount of data available on the system and customer behavior proliferates, it is critical that data privacy be maintained.

By overseeing energy use data and building in statistical safeguards, Kevala is able to facilitate complex analysis without compromising data privacy, identify anomalies due to cyber events and their impact on the power grid, as well as plan for potential attack vectors so stakeholders are prepared.

Plan for, monitor, and mitigate threats to the grid

Privacy Services

As the availability and use of Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) data and other Personally Identifiable Information (PII) become more widespread, using those data in public settings requires special consideration.

Kevala applies differential privacy and other privacy preserving practices to its integrated analytics platform to support extremely detailed and address-specific analysis while ensuring that AMI data remains maximally useful.

Threat Modeling

Distributed Energy Resources and other third-party controllable loads represent an increasing challenge to the stability and reliability of the grid. Kevala offers planning, monitoring, and mitigation solutions for utility and government clients.

Stay Ahead of Cyber Incidents

Kevala can leverage a very large amount of public and proprietary data to model cyber events and their impact on the electrical grid, including attacks on inverter technologies and other controllable grid devices.

Users can observe anomalies and mitigate them when they happen, as well as plan for attacks on the horizon so stakeholders are ready with an appropriate response.

Extremely Detailed, Address-Specific Analysis

Kevala's integrated analytics platform uses address-specific AMI data to support a broad number of use cases.

We leverage differential privacy methodologies to use AMI data in a way that respects privacy while maintaining usefulness.

Protect Personal Information in Partnerships

AMI data can contain very detailed personal information such as the amount and timing of electricity consumption, which can be used to reveal all kinds of insights, such as occupancy patterns.

Kevala enables successful engagements with third parties by ensuring the privacy of customers is maintained when using AMI that could reveal personally identifiable information.

Cyber Security and Privacy at Kevala

Kevala's platform utilizes differential privacy and threat modeling capabilities to support a broad range of analytics to identify grid planning solutions that support clean energy, electrification of transportation, carbon analytics, and more.

Our analyses often require that we deliver actionable intelligence about the grid without revealing sensitive information that may be necessary to generate those insights. As stewards of this sensitive data, we take special efforts to organize data sets so they remain secure and separated within our platform.

Kevala utilizes the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework to ensure that security and privacy preservation are foundational components of our platform. We are also working toward SOC 2 Certification.
