We help your energy company meet new cyber security challenges

In August 2018, a new and important legislation came into force based on the EU-directive NIS (Network and Information Security). The law pushes high demands on IT security for energy companies. Lack of compliance can lead to serious consequences for companies, for example getting withdrawn of the market. This means that vulnerability assessment becomes more or less a requirement. This new legislation is placed on top of the data protection regulation (GDPR) also places increased demands on IT security.

NIS - requirements for systematic IT security work

The NIS directive demands that all organizations that carry out services that are crucial for the society, such as energy supply, must be able to prove that the work in a systematica, structured and continuously with the security in their IT environment. The background of this NIS directive is the increased threat scenario for all types of organizations - not least from foreign powers.

Foreign powers - a growing threat

Foreign powers accounted for millions of attacks against organizations in Europe 2018. The goal with these attacks could be industrial espionage, sabotage or to use hacked computers to attack other targets. For energy companies the main risk is considered to be sabotage to the energy network.

Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - protect personal data

The new data protection regulation is intended to strengthen the protection of the individual by imposing higher demands on the person who registers or processes personal data. Not least, good safety must be provided to protect against data leaks. Should a leak occur, this must be reported, which means that safety deficiencies can be very costly. Organizations that do not comply with the EU's new personal data law, may receive a substantial fine of up to 4 % of the company's global turnover.
