In May 2023 the Danish energy sector got hit by several waves of cyber attacks. SektorCERT where able to detect and mitigate the attacks early on by relying on their network-based intrusion detection system (NIDS).
The IEC 62443 family of standards is an old acquaintance to most security managers for industrial systems. For more than ten years, it has literally been considered THE standard for industrial cybersecurity.
The NIS2 Directive is cleverly formulated. This is proven by its use of the idea of the trickle-down effect that will integrate all other sectors through the listed essential and important entities.
We determined that prevention has quite practical limits – whether due to intra-company structures, technical restrictions, or external influences.
This blog post trilogy takes a closer look at what implications the amended European Network and Information Security (NIS2) directive will have for companies (our entities as they are called in the directive).
Last month, Landis+Gyr joined 16 other members of the GridWise Alliance in Washington, D.C. to showcase new technology.
It has become some sort of a running gag in the cybersecurity communication that operational technology (OT) networks and industrial control systems (ICS) are notoriously insecure. However, most reports on this are limited to assumptions and general warnings.
In the first part of this post we already introduced a Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) as a solution for mitigating ransomware attacks on Operational Technology (OT).
Ransomware attacks are the number one cyber risk to industrial companies and critical infrastructure worldwide.

Recommendation aims to provide fast mitigation for vulnerable organizations
The Log4Shell vulnerability in Log4j threatens all the cornerstones of cybersecurity: availability, integrity and confidentiality.
Renewable energy installations (EEAs) are a potential target for faults simply because of their distance from the control center.
The IT Security Act 2.0 was passed. Critical infrastructures have to set up an attack detection system within two years.
In a substation of a large distribution system operator Rhebo Industrial Protector had detected suspicious behavior.
