Cybercrime Impact SeriousProbability HighExpected development Neutral →What is the risk?Ongoing digitisation has made vital infrastructure (energy networks and above-ground assets) more vulnerable to political and terrorist hacking. Now that such incidents are on the rise, cybersecurity is more crucial than ever. Any failure to respond in time to rising or changing trends in cybercrime exposes Alliander to a very high risk.How is it managed?We protect our networks and computers against attacks by working on prevention, detection and cybersecurity response plans. Within the Association of Energy Network Operators in the Netherlands (Netbeheer Nederland), we are working intensively together to address this issue. We also maintain close ties with the Dutch National Cyber Security Centre and with other parties to keep track of the rapidly evolving developments and pick up external signals of attacks at an early stage. We are also an active participant in the European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS) to mitigate cyber security risks.
