At a meeting between the Secretariat and the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) yesterday in Athens, Greece, both institutions agreed to cooperate closely in extending the standards and rules applying in the European Union to the Contracting Parties.
Cybersecurity is among the key challenges posed by the energy transition and enhanced digitalization. In interconnected electricity and gas systems, this cooperation will not only help protecting Contracting Parties but also make the European Union less vulnerable. The Secretariat is currently conducting a study on the Contracting Parties’ risk profile and their level of preparedness when it comes to cybersecurity and the protection of critical infrastructure in their energy sectors.
