Last week, ENCS welcomed 23 students from TU Delft and UTwente to Cyber Security Week in Amsterdam, hosted in collaboration with Netbeheer Nederland. The week provided the students with insight into the energy sector’s cyber security challenges, engaging them in practical exercises and talks by cyber-security experts from energy companies and government.

For the students, the energy sector was new, and the week succeeded in showing them how rewarding and dynamic it is. For the companies involved, it was a unique chance to showcase the career opportunities in the energy industry, and work with the next generation of talent.

Here at ENCS, we’re proud and excited to play a role in nurturing the next generation of cyber security experts. Getting them interested in the energy sector is an important step into closing the cyber-security skills gap.
