Cybersecurity in the Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES): an armour against cyber and privacy attacks and data breaches
Description of call
"Cybersecurity in the Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES): an armour against cyber and privacy attacks and data breaches"
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 transition to a decentralised energy system, digital technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the EPES. At the same time, the EPES is increasingly exposed to external threats, such as worms, viruses, hackers and data privacy breaches. Hence,  there is a need for new security approaches detecting and preventing threats with severe impacts and to shield the electric system against cyber-attacks.
The proposals should demonstrate how the actual EPES can be made resilient to growing and more sophisticated cyber and privacy attacks and data breaches.
