Information, communication, and cyber security technologies enable functions related to decisions and actions throughout the grid—from the transmission system to the distribution system to end-user devices. This document discusses objectives in this realm, the associated gaps, and research plans to bridge those gaps over the next 3-5 years.

This study, based on a survey of enterprise architects and interviews with executives, evaluates three strategies that utilities are using to deal with this convergence: reorganization, realignment, and stakeholder engagement.
