The Mission for Cyber Security in Energy

Digital systems are a fundamental part of how electricity and gas are transmitted and distributed and how electricity is generated to supply the homes, businesses and public services needed by everyone. Like any digital system, the risks of cyber attacks are real and require skillful design, implementation and operation to keep the systems resilient. Because energy systems are complex this needs collaboration between the many companies who operate the energy systems, the systems integrators and builders who supply and design them and also government in their policies and cyber security expertise.

This industry-led web site provides a window into the cyber security work of the UK electricity and gas sector to provide a reference point for operators and their suppliers to some key standards and initiatives and also provide pointers on where to find relevant cyber security knowledge and expertise.  The site presents information from the perspective of operators and systems vendors and official government policy should be referenced directly from BEIS and NCSC.
