Software vulnerabilities may endanger energy grids. Therefore to update all the components of a substation automation system incl. the SIPROTEC 5 Relays with the latest security functions. The latest security functions based on a hardware with integrated security chip. Due to the missing security chip, the SIPROTEC 3 and SIPROTEC 4 devices can no longer be upgraded to the current security status. In these two webinars, we will show you how to migrate a SIPROTEC 3 or SIPROTEC 4 Protection Relay to a SIPROTEC 5.


Join our experts Luis Francisco, Francois Simon and Hans-Dieter Bojer to learn how to keep your SIPROTEC relay on active Cybersecurity support.



  • How can I migrate my protection relays to a future proof and cybersecure solution?
  • Which Cybersecurity functionalities are implemented in SIPROTEC 5?
  • How can I migrate my SIPROTEC 3 or 4  to SIPROTEC 5?
  • GridPass - your tool to  manage certificates and  RBAC
  • Questions and Answers



  • Highly increased equipment and process availability
  • Minimized duration of downtime drastically reducing economic losses
  • Increased safety, also outside of normal operating conditions

We are looking forward to meeting you in the event!
