Communication networks have become essential elements that allow the ‘smart’ aspects of the power grids. They provide real-time knowledge of the grid, perform actions instantaneously when required and gather customer consumption information.
These vital assets have to be taken into account especially as far as security is concerned for several reasons: the data they transport, the increasing attack surface, the possible cascading effects that an attack can generate in the rest of the grid, etc.
The objectives of this work are to:
• address the current awareness on connectivity interdependencies by the smart grid community,
• identify, at European level, the lessons learnt from the network security point of view;
• issue a set of recommendations to secure resilient smart grids connectivity in Europe.
The purpose of this workshop is to present and validate these findings together with all stakeholders from the sector and to share their experiences.
