The training also provides a platform to let managerial level staff of NRAs with an interest in cybersecurity and those who are working with cybersecurity for NRAs, either from a technical or legal angle, connect and create useful relationships.

Russia's war against Ukraine has brought new risks, physical and cyber-attacks, often combined as a hybrid threat. The sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines and other recent incidents has made it clear that the resilience of the EU energy infrastructure is under threat.

The sanctions on Russian gas and energy deliveries to Europe have made the European shift to renewable energy sources more urgent. The drive towards further digitalisation in the energy sector gives rise to rapid innovations which require continued vigilance by everyone, including NRAs, with regard to cybersecurity.

The European Union calls for action to step up the EU's capacity to protect itself against attacks on critical infrastructure, both in the EU and its direct neighbourhood. Newly published legislation in the EU includes the Resilience of Critical Entities Directive (CER) and the revised Network and Information Security (NIS2) Directive.

A network code on cybersecurity is expected in the second quarter of 2023.
The EU argues the application of the new rules needs to be accelerated.
This training will discuss the content of this legislation and what it will mean for the energy sector.

This CEER training course targets managerial level NRA staff with an interest in cybersecurity and those who are working with cybersecurity for NRAs, either from a technical or legal angle. The course aims to provide an overview of the latest policy developments in cybersecurity and practical experiences on the technical aspects of cybersecurity risk preparedness in Europe.

The focus of this year’s programme is twofold: 

  • the first day will focus on cybersecurity related to the ongoing situation in Ukraine
  • the second day on the future of the smart grid.
