Stedin is joining the European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS) as a Member. The company will be joining a network that is committed to improving the security of the Smart Grid across Europe, including companies such as Alliander, E.ON, EVN, Enexis and KPN.

By joining ENCS, both organizations agree to share knowledge and expertise in the domain of cyber security for Smart Meter systems and critical infrastructures in Europe. The collaboration focusses on research, testing, knowledge sharing and training activities for the development of Smart Metering infrastructure and the Smart Grid.

“The security related threat is a global one. It is therefore self-evident that operators of vital critical infrastructure need to cooperate to be able to address this threat. The ENCS initiative and its current Members are an excellent example of how, by joining forces, we can lower the cost of innovation by working together,” mentioned Mark van den Brink, CIO, Stedin.
