The Cybersecurity Innovation Cluster for Electrical Power and Energy Systems (CyberEPES) has been organized under the auspices of five H2020 Projects: PHOENIX, SDN microSENSE, CyberSEAS, Energy Shield and ELECTRON as an independent initiative, supervised by the European Commission. The H2020 Projects are funded by the European Commission and European Research Executive Agency (REA) under the Digital Security Call “Cybersecurity in the Electrical Power and Energy System”.
The CyberEPES will act as a think-tank and information exchange ecosystem in order to guide and coordinate the Cybersecurity Research and Innovation results; synchronize the EPES Infrastructure Stakeholders’ continuous effort on improving the Cybersecurity and Resiliency of their Infrastructure; and contributes to building the Culture of Security for the wider community and end-users via Training, Awareness and Dissemination activities. The Cluster, based on the common project approaches, will provide Research and Development (R&D) activities such as the coordination of activities and proposals towards the establishment of common cybersecurity procedures for EPES in particular, and for Critical Infrastructures in general, including CyberThreat Intelligence (CTI) information collection, storage and sharing, and technical measures towards cybersecurity.
The CyberEPES was established on 4 June 2021.
