Cyber-resilient networks for power utilities

In an era where the automation and digitization of power utilities are rapidly advancing, the demands on IT and OT infrastructure have never been higher. The backbone of reliable operations in this sector is a secure and highly available communication network. However, this criticality also marks these networks as prime targets for cyberattacks. As threats in the cyber landscape evolve, including the emergence of AI-enhanced attacks and vulnerabilities to quantum computing, the need for robust and future-proof cyber resilience becomes paramount. Additionally, compliance with new regulatory mandates like the NIS2 and RCE directives in the EU places further emphasis on the urgency to fortify network security in the utilities sector.
