Briefing paper: Cyber security – en

The aim of any cyber security strategy is to protect as many assets as possible and especially the most important – the “crown jewels”. Since it is not feasible, sensible or even efficient to try to protect everything in equal measure, it is important to identify what is valuable and needs greatest protection, identify vulnerabilities, then to prioritize and to erect defence-in-depth architecture that ensures business continuity.

Presentation: Global energy interconnection White Paper

Global energy interconnection (GEI) is technically highly complex. It will require a level of dependability never seen before. International Standards inherently contain solutions that will help pre-address this complexity and they will play a crucial role in mastering dependability upfront. The global energy interconnection White Paper aims to assess the worldwide needs, benefits, policies and preconditions for GEI. This presentation provides a brief summary of the GEI White Paper including recommendations for regulators, industry and the IEC community.
