Executive Summary

The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system, connecting more than 300 participants, including generators that produce electricity; transmitters that send it across the province; retailers that buy and sell it; industries and businesses that use it in large quantities and local distribution companies that deliver it to people's homes. In order to better its security infrastructure and comply with the standards, the IESO began a major project to reposition its approach to operational security management. The IESO implemented the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System to help identify traffic coming into the network and ensure that malware and viruses weren't getting in. The deployment included a dozen TippingPoint 1200E devices throughout its multi-layered DMZ perimeter, stretching across redundant data centers.
