Abstract: IoT in Smart Grid has paved the way for the continuing need for digitalization in electric power. Smart Grid has made enormous improvements to the emergence in internet and networking technology but creates a huge protection and privacy gap for numerous SG components. Many developed countries contribute technology to the existing SG infrastructure, but as a developing nation, India continues to struggle to solve problems. This article discussed the smart grid's safety implications and primarily focuses on providing protections for consumer information created by the cloud storage of smart meters. Many papers have been reviewed to provide insight into cloud and data security. In this paper, a taxonomy of simulation/ testbeds along with datasets is presented. It can be deduced that no single solution can prevent cyber-attacks on the infrastructure, but artificial intelligence can help discourage future attacks.

Key words: AWS, smart grid, smart meters, IoT, data security, privacy, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data analytics, ICT, consumer domain, data lake, intelligent computation, intrusion detection, cyber physical systems
