Webinar recording: Cybersecurity, powering trust into the Grid


The smart energy ecosystem goes digital and rapidly transforms into a massive and complex IoT network. This creates an increased volume of real-time digital data exchanged through a variety of connected assets – representing a critically growing cyber attack surface.

To ensure accurate grid management and billing, as well as privacy protection, the integrity and confidentiality of smart energy data is crucial. For this reason, connected meters, assets, back-ends and the data they exchange must be secured, together with system layers which were not previously considered.

Gemalto gives an overview of existing smart grid vulnerabilities and what is at stake when an infrastructure is poorly secured. 

Key discussion topics:

  • Understanding evolving vulnerabilities
  • The regulatory landscape
  • Main security principles (edge devices protection, key security pillars)
  • Recommendations for smart meter vendors and DSOs when deploying an AMI
