Cybersecurity has numerous facets, and no one will be able to handle the entire field alone. That’s why Siemens participates in international standardization bodies and cooperates with leading companies and organizations, such as the European Energy - Information Sharing & Analysis Centre (EE-ISAC) and the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCDCOE) to develop and improve security standards for energy infrastructures.
This knowledge and experience, plus a specially designed IEC 62443-certified framework, provides the basis for Siemens’ unique Security Circle – a holistic concept for comprehensive energy infrastructure protection that's characterized by four pillars.
More than 1,000 experts from nearly 30 nations were involved in Locked Shields 2019. In addition to maintaining more than 4,000 virtualised systems and experiencing over 2,500 attacks, the teams must be effective in reporting incidents, solving forensic challenges and executing strategic decisions, to include legal and media scenario injects. To stay abreast of market developments, Locked Shields focuses on realistic and cutting-edge technologies, scenarios, networks and attack methods. Spectrum Power, Siemens’ large-scale power grid control system, was part of the exercise once again this year.
In a world where transmission and distribution networks are more and more important, protecting their integrity must be a priority for operators and tech providers alike.Michael Weinhold, CTO at Siemens Energy Management
