TACIT - Threat Assessment framework for Critical Infrastructures proTection


Description

The OBJECTIVE of TACIT will be the definition and development of a framework for the assessment of risk and impact of cyber attacks in smart grids. The framework will be used in the risk analysis and assessment phase of CIP and will support the simulation of the relevant cyber-attacks to smart grids, in order to better design the reactive measures in these infrastructures. The framework will lead to a significant improvement on the knowledge and capacities of European CI providers to develop and maintain resilient energy infrastructures. TACIT will validate and improve the framework by performing a series of end-user tests simulating cyber attacks on running smargrids to derive appropriate recommendations to enhance cyber security in smartgrids and by getting feedback through the celebration of a European-wide workshop attended by experts and relevant stakeholders.
