We used to model network contingency with a single failure of components. Such reliability measure can be further studied with extensive combinatorial events where a catastrophic disruption could massively destruct infrastructures. It is imperative the models are extended in a holistic manner to address unexpected consequences and introduce grid flexibility and robustness with distributed autonomy when major part of the network is compromised.

How big is the malware threat?
560,000 new malwares are detected everyday, and in excess of 1 billion malwares exist out there
How frequently companies are attacked?
Every minute, four companies fall victim to ransomware attacks. Trojans account for 58% of all computer malware
What's the threat malware pose?
20 million IoT malware attacks were detected in the first half of 2020
SECURITY has many definitions. From the Merriam-Webster dictionaries and power engineering definition, the evolving term can be defined as one of the following:
Adequacy of energy supply from power engineering perspective
The state of being free from danger or threat of being secure electronically and physically
A thing deposited or pledged as a guarantee of the fulfillment of an undertaking or the repayment of a loan, to be forfeited in case of default.
Instrument of Investment
An instrument of investment in the form of a document (such as a stock certificate or bond) providing evidence of its ownership
