Cybersecurity – A Permanent Challenge for the Energy Sector
Ioana-Elena ENE, Daniel SAVU
Energy security is a primary element in the development of any country. Reliable sources of energy are necessary to sustain industrial activity, power businesses and stimulate economic growth. As the energy sector develops, so does the number of cyber-attacks with significant impact on both energy production and the entire supply chain, which can paralyze the entire economic system, but above all, can destabilize national security. Mitigating all energy sector vulnerabilities is almost impossible. However, in the event of a cybersecurity incident, a series of measures can be implemented with the aim of reducing the risks and ensuring the continuity of operations. This article presents an overview of cyber-threats and vulnerabilities in the energy sector, describes risk management related to cybersecurity, technology solutions and the European Union policy and legislation on cybersecurity in this sector.
