Johan Rambi and Sonja Schouten, security experts of Alliander visited yesterday (26th February) ENISA’s premises in Athens. They met with Dr. Steve Purser, ENISA’s Head of Core Operations Department, Dr. Evangelos Ouzounis, ENISA’s Head of Infrastructure & Services Unit and the Smart Grid and ICS/SCADA security team of ENISA.
The objective of this visit was to explore opportunities for further co-operation among the two institutions. The topics of the discussion covered:
- the role of ENISA in the DENSEK project
- cyber security matters of Smart Grids
- ICS/SCADA and
- Smart Cities.
Specific actions for further co-operation between the two organisations in these emerging fields were discussed and agreed.
DENSEK is an EC funded project for the development of a European ISAC for the energy sector. Three main deliverables are foreseen: the ISAC, the information sharing platform and the Situational Awareness Network. ENISA is member of the Advisory Council for this project.
ENISA has also launched a series of activities aiming at bringing together the relevant stakeholders and engaging them into an open discussion on smart grids and ICS/SCADA security. The principal goal of the open dialogue is to identify the main concerns regarding the security of these systems as well as to recognize and support national, pan European and international initiatives on these fields.
ENISA will continue collaborating and engaging with institutions like Alliander with the objective to develop good practices and share information on appropriate preparedness measures
