C3 AND SELF-HEALING SMART GRID TECHNOLOGY PPP MUTUAL INVESTMENTS

BACKGROUND: DHS NATIONAL PROTECTION AND PROGRAMS DIRECTORATE (CYBER), C3 program created in 2014 and associated NETGuard program should consider the newly evolving SELF-HEALING SMART GRID TECHNOLOGIES coming to market, and forge mutual investment paths as PPP agreements such that Private-sector companies can afford to upgrade to SELF-HEALING SMART GRID TECHNOLOGIES. The agreement must state that the Private-sector business (that benefits from funding) must commit to implement and participate in the C3 framework, and associated programs to receive said funds.

BUSINESS RESILIENCE AUGMENTATION: In the mean time, one of the cheapest and easiest ways private-sector businesses can implement some elements of their COOP and EOP is through making friends with other local businesses that align with (each others needs) and form mutually beneficial relationships, then forge agreements (e.g. MOU, and aid agreements), then conduct a drill with all stakeholders and employees. In addition, NETGuard could support Telework for COOP, but this mixes the volunteer with a potential class of service personnel, procedure, and information that may be confidential (especially if this support takes the form of Federal COG functions).

While the attacks which have occurred over a period of time seem to have originated in China and Russia, it is unknown if they are state-sponsored or errors in the computer code.
