Method for Identification and Modelling of Cybersecurity Risks in the Context of Smart Power Grids

Challenge and objective

  • Smart grids introduce new vulnerabilities and risks.
  • Risk analysis of cybersecurity particularly demanding due to interdisciplinary nature – existing state-of-the-art challenged. 

Work performed

  • Implemented a model for qualitative risk analysis of cyber risk in smart grids based on parts of "CORAS" method risk analysis.
  • Tested on an installation of self-healing functionality at a CINELDI DSO partner.

Significant result

  • A customized four-step approach to identification and modelling of cybersecurity risks in the context of smart power grids.

Impact for distribution system innovation

  • Improved security of supply enabled by improved risk understanding and management.
