Registration is now open! The Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) is of key importance to the economy, as all other domains rely on the availability of electricity. With the growing use of digital devices and advanced communications and interconnected systems, the EPES is increasingly exposed to external cyber-threats, and therefore they requires an attentive evaluation of the cyber security risk that allows taking proper countermeasures.
On the other hand, despite Smart Grids (SG) support a dynamic two-way information exchange between utility companies and their customers, contributing towards a smart and sustainable energy management in Europe and the establishment of a wiser energy consumption mentality, the power grid is also exposed to security threats inherited from the ICT sector, while privacy issues and new vulnerabilities, related to the specific characteristics of the Smart Grids infrastructure, are emerging.
Cyberwatching.eu organised a webinar entitled “EPES and Smart GRIDS: practical tools and methods to fight against cyber and privacy attacks” taking place on 12 November 2020 at 11 AM CET, in collaboration with EnergySHIELD, SDN-Microsense, SealedGRID and DEFeND.
