Smart Grid Security
Abstract: “Appropriate security measures for smart grids”

In December 2012, the European Network and information Security Agency (ENISA) published the ‘Appropriate security measures for smart grids’ technical guidance. This introduces a list of security measures, grouped in domains, in order to support smart grid supply chain stakeholders in improving the minimum level of cyber security of their services. The guidance provides advice to smart grid stakeholders by introducing a set of minimum security measures which might help in improving the minimum level of their cyber security services. The proposed security measures are organised into three (3) sophistication levels and ten (10) domains, namely:

1. Security governance & risk management;
2. Management of third parties;
3. Secure lifecycle process for smart grid components/systems and operating procedures;
4. Personnel security, awareness and training;
5. Incident response & information knowledge sharing;
6. Audit and accountability;
7. Continuity of operations;
8. Physical security;
9. Information systems security; and
10. Network security.
