Protecting Critical Infrastructure

Southern Company is playing a key role in protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure against existential threats, including national disasters and physical and cyber-attacks, as a part of a national energy policy.

Southern Company Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, Tom Fanning, is a well-respected thought leader in the cybersecurity field and leads the coordination between the electric power industry and the federal government to improve the collective defense of the nation’s most critical infrastructure. He holds leadership positions with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cybersecurity Advisory Committee, Cyberspace Solarium Commission and the Tri-sector Executive Working Group.

A reliable and resilient future

Southern Company understands that delivering the future of energy requires that we protect that future. That’s why we deploy multiple layers of security to help ensure the resilience of our system. “Cybersecurity has become paramount, day in and day out,” explains Martin Davis, chief information officer for Southern Company. “As a critical part of the infrastructure of the United States, we’ve got to protect it at all costs.” Just as cyber threats are ever-changing, Southern Company is ever-diligent in its efforts to protect its technological assets.

Action towards a net zero future

The Southern Company system has set a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goal of net zero emissions by 2050. We put customers at the center of everything we do, building a sustainable workforce and making sure that communities are better off because we’re there. This approach is embedded in our values and our DNA, and we know that it is the right way to drive long-term performance.

In 2020, the system reduced GHG emissions 52% from its 2007 benchmark levels, exceeding its intermediate 2030 goal to reduce GHG emissions by 50%. Our history of performance and the partnerships we've fostered with business, government and research institutes make our progressive energy solutions a reality.
