Greater Focus Required on Security For Smart Metering

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence : 04 July, 2011  (Technical Article)
Security and privacy by design is the fundamental aim of Detica's role in the SmartReach Consortium for mitigating risks in smart metering
Greater Focus Required on Security For Smart Metering

Detica, a member of the SmartReach Consortium, has commented on the NAO's recent report on smart metering.


"We read the recent NAO report on smart metering with interest and agree that, "...more work is required on security before roll-out starts".  The smart metering implementation is a critically important programme to Great Britain and we are pleased to be playing a continuing role on the programme's Security Technical Experts Group; we have always advocated security and privacy by design as the most effective means of mitigating any potential underlying risk.  We are keen to see additional resource and priority given to this, in order to ensure that these key areas achieve a greater focus," said Steve Daniels, Head of Information Assurance for the Energy and Utilities sector at Detica.


Detica is a member of the SmartReach Consortium with BT and Arqiva.
