Cyber security education is now an essential piece of information to understand the current challenges in utilizing the technology in a secure manner. In this paper, we highlight the need of improving the human factors role and cyber security awareness in better securing the systems. We discuss a simulation tool called CPSA that can be used for education and training purposes to understand the impact of cyber-attacks on the physical power system, and overall system monitoring. The tool supports attacks modeling, different communication network topologies, simulation of bad data and malicious command received over the insecure network. This tool is helpful for students and researchers’ education to better understand the logics and prepare them with skills to evaluate the future cyber-physical system security. The tool can also be used for training purpose to the technical and non-technical staff at power utility.
