Cybersecurity in the Power Grid – A 360° View | Part 7

Cracking the code: How to uncover 99% of cyber attacks on your system.

Welcome to the 7th episode of our Energy Talks miniseries, Cybersecurity in the Power Grid, in which we provide a 360-degree view of how power grids can best safeguard their infrastructures from cyber attacks.

In this episode, we will learn how an OMICRON team of cybersecurity experts goes about analyzing incoming alarms and how even the smallest indicators can reveal hidden dangers that threaten the safety and operations of an entire system.

This was tested by the Norwegian utility company Glitre Nett. They conducted an intrusion detection system (IDS) evaluation exercise at a live substation to compare the solutions of multiple vendors, including OMICRON.

OMICRON cybersecurity experts Ozan Dayanc, Christoph Rheinberger, and Lukas Schneider join us in this episode to describe their involvement in the project with Glitre Nett and discuss how they successfully completed it using OMICRON’s StationGuard intrusion detection system.

The project involved executing live attack simulations in the substation to compare the detection mechanisms of the various IDS solutions. Glitre Nett also wanted to ensure the detection response and support capabilities of the cybersecurity experts at each vendor company.

Stay tuned for upcoming episodes in our Cybersecurity in the Power Grid miniseries.

“Collaboration between IT and OT is crucial for incident response, and this is facilitated when they can work together using the same intrusion detection system in power grid environments.

Ozan Dayanc, Technical Product Manager, OMICRON


“Our approach at OMICRON is to look at the whole OT environment and critical infrastructure, which is an area we are proficient in.

Christoph Rheinberger, Cybersecurity Analyst

“Together, our team of experts and solutions create a valuable setup for effectively and accurately reacting to incidents not only in the attack simulation but also in reality.

Lukas Schneider, Full Stack Developer
