ENCS ensures cyber security in the EU

ENCS stands for European Network for Cyber security (ENCS). We are a non-profit organisation owned by grid operators (DSOs and TSOs) that want to improve cyber security in the EU.

At ENCS, we share information and knowledge with our network of members, who are all experts on cyber security in the EU. We develop knowledge in 3 long-term security programs that are run by our consultants, in close collaboration with our members’ security experts. We then share the acquired knowledge through events, security requirements and best practice documents. To make our expertise more easily accessible, we provide testing, training and consulting services to individual members.
