Protecting Advanced Metering Infrastructure

presentation by Krzysztof Swaczyński
during Swiss Cyber Storm 2022
Bern, Switzerland, 25.10.2022

According to European legislation, 80% of the electricity meters rolled out to consumers by 2024 are required to be smart meters, as a part of the ‘smart grid’ concept. While the deployment of the electrical ‘smart grid’ infrastructure increases its functionality, at the same time the risk associated with its operation increases i.e. through the substantial extension of potential cyberattack surface.
The presentation goes through cybersecurity control mechanisms that act as a countermeasure for most common and critical misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in Advanced Metering Infrastructure.
