Proposal for a list of security measures for Smart grids
As we have previously informed TPEB Czech Republic participated in the project of a European Agency ENISA “ Proposal for a list of security measures for Smart grids“ “ . The project was launched in May 2013, and its output is the attached document , which was published in early April 2014.
In its Communication on „Smart Grids: from innovation to deployment“ [COM/2011/202], the European Commission has recognised that smart grids, as a Critical Infrastructure, should operate securely and respect end users‘ privacy. For this reason, the Commission has decided to further investigate the challenges of ensuring adequate smart grid protection in the EU. In light of the above, ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency), in cooperation with ENER and CNECT, undertook consultations with the private and public sectors in order to formulate security measures to assist smart grid providers in improving the infrastructures‘ cyber resilience.
In its Communication [ COM/2011/202 ] , the European Commission states that the intelligent network ( SmartGrids ) , as part of the critical infrastructure should be operated safely and have to respect the privacy of end users. Commission in relation to this first document decided to further explore this topic and provide adequate protection for smart grids in the EU .
The document contains a proposal for 45 security measures , subdivided into 11 security domains .
This model will work with the Member States , their institutions and representatives , further precise and finalizing . If you are interested , this is an opportunity for you to contribute to this process and improve the models at national and European level.
