ENCS will participate in the upcoming IEC 61850 Week 2021 from the 18th to the 22nd of October. On October 22nd, Maarten Hoeve will be speaking on the Post-Conference Cybersecurity Seminar. The talk, Cybersecurity Certification, will give a view on how to leverage state-of-the-art testing and certification processes to validate and ensure the cyber resilience of IEC 61850-enabled digital substations.
The 8th annual IEC 61850 Week 2021 draws together IEC 61850 implementation leaders for a week-long review of the latest standardisation developments, pilot project results, large-scale implementation experiences, and future application explorations.
The focus of this year’s programme is on driving the deployment of next generation IEC 61850 architectures through more efficient specification, engineering, testing, operation, and maintenance, as well as innovations in cybersecurity in the context of a more rapid replacement strategy.
Day one kicks off with a hands-on System Specification workshop. Days two to four showcase implementation experiences from leading utilities across Europe, Americas, Asia, Middle East and Africa. The week wraps up with a deep diving seminar into the cybersecurity issues currently impeding the full deployment of IEC 61850, to help utilities tighten up their system security today and leverage the cybersecurity innovations of tomorrow.
