At ENCS, we provide lab security testing for smart grid components and on-site security testing for complete systems. These tests are carried out on project basis. We define the objective and scope together with you, after which we propose a test approach. With your approval, we then get to work.
We provide on-site security testing to verify the security of complete systems. Our testers start by analysing the risks to the system and the architecture the grid operators have chosen to mitigate them. To do so, our people build on the risk assessments and security architectures developed in the ENCS architecture program.
After this initial analysis, we select the best test activities to efficiently probe the strength of the measures against your biggest risks. Our testers have experience with many techniques, including penetration testing, code reviews, vulnerability scanning, technical audits, web application testing, and purple teaming. Of course, our experience with similar systems at other members’ sites comes in handy too during security testing.
