Houston County Electric Cooperative (HCEC)
Houston County Electric Cooperative (HCEC) is a regional electric distribution cooperative with over 5,000 miles of power lines serving about 25,000 members. Recognizing the risk of large-scale attacks against bulk electric systems, HCEC wanted to shore up protection for its substation equipment and other critical assets. Working with its managed service provider, SkyHelm, HCEC deployed Fortinet’s next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) and secure access switches to segment its network and provide more robust protection from the expanding threat landscape. For SkyHelm, the integrated nature of the Fortinet Security Fabric and its centralized network and security management tools made it easy to meet HCEC’s needs.
Learn how HCEC is improving its security posture and aligning with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) standard in this case study.
