Finally, more than 90 people logged in to listen to the talks of Robert Lagerström (KTH), Erik Ringdahl (foreseeti), and Simon Hacks (KTH) given on July 9.
Robert opened the webinar with explaining the overarching goal of the EnergyShield project and stressing the challenges the EPES sector is facing when it comes to cyber security. Furthermore, he presented actual research conducted at KTH to tackle these challenges. Then, Erik took over and showed the interested audience the capabilities of foreseeti’s tool securiCAD and the way it was used in the past to simulate attacks on the EPES sector. Finally, Simon brought the threads of Robert and Erik together, presenting epesLang, a threat modelling languages that covers the assets needed to successfully conduct attack simulations on power assets. epesLang’s capabilities were demonstrated by modelling the attack on the Ukraine from 2015 and illustrating also alternative attack paths that could have been successful.
The webinar was closed by a panel discussion on the key challenges for the EPES sector, how these challenges can be addressed, and what are the key enablers. In the panel, Chris Few (Ofgem), Johan Söderbom (InnoEnergy), Kimon Nicolaides (MASS), Thomas Olsen (Lagoni Engineering), and Matthias Rohr (PSI Software AG) participated.
