    SUCCESS trial site open day and second Advisory Board meeting

    On April 19th, the SUCCESS project opened the doors of the field trial site in Terni, Italy, displaying the solutions developed for protecting Critical Infrastructures from cyber-threats. A low-cost Phasor Measurement Unit which is being developed by ACS has been delivered to the field trial sites in Terni and Romania. At the same time in Terni, the second Project Advisory Board meeting was hosted, where the project team got feedback on its work so far and advice on how to improve for the rest of the project. The SUCCESS security solution works at several different levels: It introduces a new Smart Meter with enhanced security funcitons New security functionality is being developed at the edge of the 5G mobile communications network to detect and mitigate tampering with communications. A Security Operations Centre is being developed which can detect and mitigate cyber-attacks on a critical infrastructure. A Europe-wide information sharing and security analytics network is proposed to allow the infrastructure operators and authorities to share information and benefit from others' knowledge. ACS, represented by Dr. Gianluca Lipari, Padraic McKeever and Igor Sowa, presented the contributions given to the project and demonstrated some of the techniques developed for the cybersecurity of Critical Energy Infrastructures.
