(IS-2014-62) Smart Grid Threat Landscape and Good Practice Guide

This report from Enisa elaborates on cyber security issues with regards to smart grid information infrastructure. This document provides tools to assess risk exposure of smart grid assets and will show what others have done in this respect. It elaborates on the threats smart grid components are exposed to and on the security controls to reduce threat exposure. But the assessment on the living object can be done only by the asset owner, just because asset owners master the complexity of infrastructures and the interdependencies among various assets. This task cannot be done as a generic exercise or it would have low value. Concluding, one should note that the use of these tools will depend on the capabilities of the expert users. In cyber-security preparedness, however, much depends on the capabilities of the adversary, which are not always known and certain.
