Cybersecurity in the electricity grid

The electricity grid is undergoing a digital transition to become intelligent, robust, and cost-efficient. We need to understand the threats and vulnerabilities related to the digital transition of the electricity grid with the aim of improved control over the cyber risks.

Protecting the real electrical grid by attacking a simulated one

In an increasingly digital society, protecting the electrical grid against cyberattacks has never been more important. As part of the European project SDN-microSENSE, SINTEF has helped develop tools to detect and mitigate cyberattacks, but they need to be tested before they can be deployed in the real grid. The solution? Deploy the tools in a simulated grid and launch real cyberattacks at them.
