EC funded project

EnergyShield captures the needs of Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) operators and combines the latest technologies for vulnerability assessment, supervision and protection to draft a defensive toolkit. The toolkit combines the latest technologies for automated threat modelling and security behaviour analysis, anomaly detection and DDoS mitigation and security information and event management) The results will be validated and demonstrated in two locations: Italy (offline pilot) and Bulgaria, 

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
