Safety & Security

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

What we do to protect the grid, and you, all year long

As a PEC member, your cybersecurity is in good hands. This National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – and all year long – we take these measures, and more, to protect you and your information:

  • We offer secure payment options online, on the phone and in person.
  • We ensure our website is secure, so you can safely access information about board meetings, system interconnection forms, scholarship applications and more.
  • We never sell member information to marketers or third parties.
  • We warn you about suspected scam activity. Visit coop/scams to learn more.

Stay safe with strong passwords

  • Make your password a sentence that is at least 12 characters long, like “I L0v3 r0ck and r0ll.” A longer password is harder to crack than a short one, and a phrase may be easier for you to remember. Make sure to include numbers and characters.
  • Use unique passwords for every account.
  • Do not write down or share passwords.
