Protecting the UK’s smart grids

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) has published an independent report by respected international consultants KEMA into smart grid cyber security. The report, commissioned by ENA for the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) considered how government and networks should develop a strategy to secure the future UK electricity infrastructure.

The report comes just weeks before a newly formed taskforce will bring together the energy networks’ and government’s security advisers to discuss how the future influx of IT and communications on the grid will be protected.

The report found that although plans for distribution network operators and government are rigorous, a more coherent and joined-up approach is needed to meet concerns of the future.

The full report can be read as a PDF here.
