Cyber security services for HVDC and FACTS

Cyber threats are increasing, with serious consequences for companies and communities on a global level. Critical infrastructure like power transmission systemsare increasingly becoming the focus. Because information technology systems are the foundation of today's critical processes in most companies, they are at significant risk of being attacked by hackers or viruses. There can be serious consequences if these attacks result in data loss, theft of confidential data, or even a complete system failure. Even if the devices are not directly connected to the Internet, there are other possible risks such as manipulated IT devices or laptops from outside the station. Unauthorized changes to critical parameters and set-points, control commands, or device configurations can disrupt the power supply with serious, unforeseeable consequences for all participants in the power transmission chain. It's also of the utmost importance to understand that cyber security isn't a one-time task but rather an ongoing endeavor throughout the entire system's lifecycle in order to continuously fight new cyber threats.
