    Joint briefing with EnergyUK exploring the cyber security challenges facing the UK energy sector

This joint event from techUK and EnergyUK will explore the key cyber security challenges facing the UK energy sector and examine the risks for the energy sector’s operating technology, domestic supply and industrial internet of things. 

Cyber security is increasingly on the radar of the energy sector, as it becomes a critical enabler and the risks around cyber become clearer in the face of high-profile UK cyber-attacks. In recent years there has been a shift within the sector, from a focus on reliability to security, with acknowledgement that energy supply relies on the cyber security of the system, because of the rapid digitisation of the sector. Moreover, with the proliferation of distributed data communications within the energy sector, there has been increased requirements on cloud-based software and IoT devices, which need to be secure by design. 

Attendees at this event will explore how the energy sector can promote secure by design principles in the sector and will also discuss how the energy sector has dealt with the new challenges and the direct requirements for Supply Chain Security stated in the Cyber Assessment Framework (CAF). Finally, the emergence of smart grids and smart homes has created a new target for cybercriminals, and we will discuss routes to deter cyber crime in the energy sector. 

With speakers from government, regulatory bodies and industry, we hope you can join us for what promises to be a great event.
