The objectives of the project are to:
- Adapt and improve available building tools (assessment, monitoring & protection, remediation) in order to support the needs of the Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) sector
- Integrate the improved cybersecurity tools in a holistic solution with assessment, monitoring/protection and learning/sharing capabilities that work synergistically
- Validate the practical value of the EnergyShield toolkit in demonstrations involving EPES stakeholders
- Develop best practices, guidelines and methodologies supporting the deployment of the solution and encourage widespread adoption of the project results in the EPES sector
- Full end-to-end demonstrator will be deployed in Bulgaria and involved all stakeholders of the EPES value chain to study the cascading effects of cyberattacks throughout the value chain, and analyse cybersecurity risks related to the cyber supply chain
- A smaller offline demonstrator focusing on DSO infrastructures will be deployed in Italy to study the feasibility of a dedicated offline testing area on one of the network control sub-systems (remote control, AMI infrastructure), where a cyber-attack will be simulated.
The EnergyShield toolkit will combine the latest technologies for vulnerability assessment (automated threat modelling), monitoring & protection (anomaly detection and DDoS mitigation) and learning & sharing (security information and event management).
