Digitalisation is key in enabling future-proof and more sustainable energy systems. However, it also carries risks which, while not unique to the energy sector, need to be assessed and managed: cybersecurity and privacy. Digital resilience, privacy and data ownership need to be integrated in a future-proof energy sector.
InnovationQuarter operates in the big transitions that the planet is facing, to build a future economy that is not only sustainable but also smart and secure. Incorporating safety in digital solutions that will power the energy transition is therefore paramount.
Innovation in digital solutions contributes to a more sustainable energy sector and higher efficiency. Smart grid technologies play an important role in the route to sustainable development. However, at the same time, these developments increase the vulnerability to cyber attacks and the amount of economic harm they can cause.
The number of cyber attacks in the energy sector is rapidly increasing since 2019 (Hunt & Hackett).
A large-scale blackout would have socioeconomic ramifications for households, businesses and vital institutions.
A cyber attack on organizations in the energy could do serious harm, including lives and the environment.
The energy sector is one of the sectors with the highest spending on cyber security (European Union Agency for Cybersecurity report 2021).
