Energy and Utilities

The energy and utilities sector is a critical infrastructure sector that provides essential services such as electricity, gas, and water to millions of people in the UK. The sector is highly reliant on technology to ensure the efficient operation of critical systems such as power grids, pipelines, and water treatment plants. As a result, cyber threats pose a significant risk, including the loss of sensitive data, disruption of services, and potential physical harm.

Threat actors targeting this sector include nation-states, hacktivists, cyber criminals, and insider threats. Notable high-profile attacks on this sector include the 2015 Ukraine power grid attack and the 2020 SolarWinds supply chain attack.

Significant changes impacting the energy and utilities sector include the move towards smart grid technology and the increasing use of renewable energy sources. These changes have led to an increased reliance on technology, which has also increased the sector's exposure to cyber risks.

Legal and regulatory compliance requirements and guidance in this sector include the Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive, which mandates the implementation of cybersecurity measures for operators of essential services, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which requires organisations to protect the personal data of EU citizens as well as the NCSC CAF for CNI within this sector.
