IT security for the energy sector– demonstrate the security of your energy company’s IT systems with certification to IEC 62351.

Component of electrical product

The IT Security Act (ITSiG), which was passed by the German Federal Parliament and due to be implemented by 2018, states that companies which form part of the critical infrastructure (KRITIS), must meet minimum requirements for IT security. This includes companies that are involved with the supply of energy.

New developments in the energy sector, such as electric cars and small thermal power stations, have led to the emergence of unique communication and data transmission protocols. IEC 62351 was developed specifically to ensure that suppliers and distributors of energy are protected from cyber attack. We can help you to comply with the requirements of IEC 62351 and demonstrate that your Information Security Management System (ISMS) is secure.
