CyberSEAS: secure energy

Our research project to counter the cyber risks related to attacks against Electrical Power and Energy System and protecting consumers.

Approach & Solution

Cyberseas 480x480.jpg


The dramatic increase of the attack surface of a modern power grid tells us that solutions for protecting Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) from such high-impact cyber-attacks are of paramount importance.

These attacks, which have the highest potential of disrupting the business continuity of critical elements in the energy distribution, may also result in major safety incidents, with loss of lives and substantial damages to infrastructure and critical privacy breaches.

CyberSEAS considers the challenges and the constraints resulting from the increasing use of decentralised renewable energy sources and legacy systems that will continue to co-exist in extended energy supply chains.It also covers attacks targeting the confidentiality of citizens’ data, the privacy and the integrity of the Energy data space.

The solution is focused on innovative involvement models of stakeholders and consumers in complex attack scenarios, characterised by the presence of legacy systems and the increasing connectivity of data feeds.

The research project CyberSEAS delivers an open and extendable ecosystem of 30 customisable security solutions providing effective support for key activities. CyberSEAS solutions are validated through experimental campaigns consisting of 100+ attack scenarios, tested in 3 labs before moving out to one of 6 piloting infrastructures across 6 European countries.

CyberSEAS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101020560
