The protection of critical infrastructure in the energy system is therefore of particular importance – all the more so in view of the current political situation. Our report contributes to the discussion in order to set the topic of cyber security in the energy industry as an innovation topic and a design factor suitable for the energy transition," says Andreas Kuhlmann, CEO of dena.
As an innovation report, EnerCrypt lays the foundation for further projects in the field of cyber security. dena is also dedicating itself to the topic in follow-up projects and intends to act as a platform for national and international cooperation in the future. With regard to the German-Israeli energy partnership, dena will in the future also develop solutions and energy technologies in the field of cyber security in cooperation with its partners from Israel.
