Webcast: »Kick-off event for the IT-SiG 2.0 webinar series« | Thursday, June 17

The recently updated German IT Security Act (also known as IT-SiG 2.0) re-inforces the requirements for energy supply companies: Among other things, it requires a comprehensive intrusion detection system that - according to §8a - "continuously and automatically records and evaluates parameters and characteristics from ongoing operations, and which should be able to continuously identify and avoid threats and take appropriate remedial measures for any malfunctions that have occurred."

In our 3-part webinar series, speakers from politics, consulting and energy companies will discuss the amendment   from different perspectives. We start on June 17th with the following topics:

  • intrusion detection and holistic cybersecurity;
  • importance of the converging IT and OT;
  • substation level monitoring;
  • OT monitoring in practice.
