Security company to provide advice to EU utility companies

Gemalto has joined the European Network for Cyber-Security (ENCS). As an ENCS partner, Gemalto is providing support and expertise to European utilities managing the security and privacy challenges of large-scale smart grid and smart metering deployments.

ENCS was founded as a non-profit organization to address the evolving security challenges of an increasingly digital energy marketplace. It brings together the knowledge and resources of member and partner organizations across academia, government and business to secure critical European energy infrastructures. Offering a solid platform of applied research and expertise, the organization helps define technical security requirements, provide component and end-to-end testing, and deliver education and training for industry stakeholders.

Gemalto has been an integral part of the energy industry’s digital transformation since the first smart meter roll-outs more than a decade ago. In addition, Gemalto brings its recognized know-how in delivering mass-market security solutions to sensitive industries such as government and banking. This combined experience provides practical knowledge and support for the critical infrastructure operators within the utility sector.

“ENCS is leading cyber security collaboration in Europe and our members warmly welcome Gemalto as new Partner,” says Michael John, Director of Consulting Services at ENCS. “We trust Gemalto to help and support the industry in defining best practices and requirements to enable the transition to a scalable, robust, secure and digitized smart energy world.”

“In joining the ENCS, Gemalto gains the valuable opportunity to bring expertise and further explore all challenges faced by customers in the swiftly evolving digital energy marketplace,” says Thomas Weisshaupt, Director of Smart Energy for Gemalto. “Industry collaboration has never been more critical to advancing secure smart energy systems and we look forward to working hand-in-hand with other stakeholders to build trust across a privacy enhanced European energy grid.”
