Smart grid infrastructures comprise the communication, computing, and measuring services to obtain substantial benefits from the digitization of conventional electrical grids. The rate of information transfer and measuring the field parameters using sensory devices has increased the operational speed of the grid. A smart grid comprises a lot of sensory & intelligent devices and all these devices are controlled by a supervisory system. Integration of intelligent devices and IoTs controlling enhances the information exchange rate, and efficient demand management. However, the integration of IoT devices introduces cyber security threats. This paper entails cyber security concerns and protection measures against cyber security threats. The potential cyber security threats have been addressed first in this report. Then, preventive measures are discussed to reduce the likelihood of cyberattacks. The common challenges that will arise while implementing the cyber security system are also addressed in this report.
