DWGP Attorney Sean Neal discussed how ensuring that sensitive information is protected concerning key infrastructure is a priority of public power systems at APPA’s October 2019 Legal and Regulatory Conference in Portland, Oregon.  He described how law, regulations, and industry practice have defined Critical Energy Infrastructure, and the limitations of such designations under the Freedom of Information Act and state public records acts.  In addition, he outlined how definitions of critical infrastructure used in reliability compliance regimes interplay with definitions used in other legal regimes. For more information, please contact Sean Neal.
