Collaboration Projects

By facilitating the collaboration between our members and partners, ENCS covers a range of capabilities from defining technical security requirements in procurement, evaluation of protocols or assisting in the resolution of identified vulnerabilities.

Security Testing

The ENCS test lab helps to validate that security measures have been implemented correctly. Both components and complete systems can be tested.


ENCS created it’s own Red Team – Blue Team Training, to train others in securing their critical infrastructure systems.

Information & Knowledge sharing

Part of the mission of ENCS is to bring together critical infrastructure stake owners and security experts to work together in order to deploy secure European critical energy grids that meet today’s challenges.


ENTSO-E participants trained to better defend the critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks

ENCS has successfully finished yet another Red Team Blue Team Training. This time, ENTSO-E participants coming from across Europe were successfully trained to mitigate cyber-attacks at their work place. They learned how to use security monitoring tools to monitor the status of the network, which will allow them to respond quickly


European Utility Week 2016 – a cyber success story

Define irony: a two second power cut at Europe’s premier smart utility event, hours before the “safety of the grid” panel! That aside, this year’s European Utility Week (EUW) in Barcelona was fantastic from our perspective at ENCS. As a network organisation, we exist to bring the industry together to


Cybersecurity and smart charging of electric vehicles, let’s do the smart thing from the beginning

In this blog, we will focus on the situation in The Netherlands, a country with one of the fasted growing fleet of (plug-in) electric cars in the world (94.007 June 2016, see figure below for growth EV in the Netherlands, blue is plug-in hybrid, orange is full electric).
