HANOVER (AP) — Dartmouth College in New Hampshire has received nearly $1 million as part of a push to create and foster cyberattack-resistant systems for electric power and oil and gas industries.
The Valley News reports the money is coming from the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium as part of its $28.1 million effort. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The consortium includes 11 national laboratories and universities and is led by the University of Illinois. Dartmouth has been a partner in the project since its beginning a decade ago.
Dartmouth says the $925,000 grant will improve the protection of the electric grid and oil and natural gas infrastructure from cyber threats.
