Cybersecurity in Utilities – Thematic Research

Pages: 46 Published: June 29, 2018 Report Code: GDPE-TR-S006

Cybersecurity has been a concern for utilities for decades, due to their roles as operators of critical infrastructure and providers of essential services. However, concern over cybersecurity continues to climb up utilities’ agendas, driven by the increasingly interconnected nature of their infrastructure and systems, and the growing number of attacks targeting utilities.

Utilities need to transition to a more connected and smart energy system. They are also adopting IoT technologies that potentially open up utilities’ systems and infrastructure to the outside world. These include smart meters, sensors, and other grid monitoring devices. While this transition is necessary to make utilities more efficient and enable the uptake of new technologies like electric vehicles and solar and wind, it also creates many more targets for malicious actors to target. It also means that utilities will increasingly need to open up some of their core systems that were historically protected by being isolated from the outside world, also creating new potential risks.
