D2.46 Cybersecurity: future threats and impact on Electric Power Utility organizations and operations

The cybersecurity threat landscape is rapidly evolving. EPUs need a prediction of the evolution of these threats, the corresponding changes to local laws and regulations, and the need for standardization. The planning horizon for these estimates should be divided between the near term (next 10 years) and the long term (next 20 years). The assessment of the impact should include recommended changes to EPU cybersecurity policies, procedures and organizational directives, and recommended solutions to improve the security posture of EPU organizations and operations.
