Automate, Prioritize, and Quantify CyberSecurity Risk

KDM Analytics to Present at CIGRE 2020 Conferences on Automated Risk Assessment for the Smart Grid

KDM Analytics has been accepted to deliver two presentations at upcoming CIGRE and CIGRE SEERC conferences. The presentations—including a paper and a case study—explore cybersecurity concerns and automated risk assessment approaches for protecting increasingly vulnerable Smart Grid power systems.

Both presentations are a collaboration between KDM Analytics, a cyber security solutions provider in Canada, and JP Elektroprivreda (EPBiH), the largest power utility company in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

At the CIGRE e-Session 2020 (24 August – Thursday 3 September), the team will present a case study called Applying Automated Cyber Risk Assessment for the Smart Grid. The session will show how KDM Analytics’ solution was used at EPBiH to automate the risk and mitigation assessment of the SCADA system for energy production used by the utility’s cyber-security department. It is Session PPD2-29.

At the CIGRE South East European Regional Council Conference 2020 (24-27 November), the team will present on the topic of Cross Border Cooperation – Cyber Security. This paper considers the historically disparate structure of the European energy structure, the risks that structure poses to cyber security of the grid, and how an automated model-based risk assessment can harmonize the risk and mitigation assessment of Smart Grid power systems. It is session 1128.

The team of presenters and collaborators includes: Djenana Campara and Dr. Nicolai Mansourov of KDM Analytics (Canada); A. Hrustemovic, E. Hadzovic and A, Ahmethodzic of JP Electroprivreda (Bosnia and Herzigovina); and, Dr. M. Veledar CIGRE, BH contriutor.
