During the 21st century, the number of blackouts in the electrical power and energy systems has been increasing in Europe. The issues can be caused by physical failures, such as storms, but also increasingly often by cyberattacks.
Dr. Gregorio López from the eFORT partner Comillas University presented eFORT’s approach to improving cybersecurity in electrical grids at the Barcelona Cybersecurity Congress on 2 February 2023.
He discussed the recent demand side attacks and MadIoT attacks (manipulation of demand via Internet of Things). In addition, he presented some of the recent literature and research questions concerning the topic.
