Information security has become in last years a fixed part of legislative acts and rules and the information exchange between the different players in the market daily routing.

Energy and utility industry in general are according to the IT security law with critical infrastructure and therefore particularly focused. Operators of criticital infrastructures moreover have been attacked by hackers that resulted due to failures and malfunctions in serious supply shortages for society.

The dependencies between the systems increase the sensivity or vulnerability of the complete system. This induces the operators of critical infrastructures to realise IT security and information security in compliance with the state-of-the-art and to regularly demonstrate full compliance. In focus are mainly systems of network control management, system operation and measured-value detection and processing, but as well as plant components for generation, transmission and distribution of energy across the sectors of power, gas, and district heat.
