Smart Grid is a new power grid paradigm that aims to intelligently coordinate the behaviours of all entities involved in energy generation, distribution, and consumption. Smart Grid consists of multiple smart devices that have limited processing capabilities. As a result, conventional attack detection and mitigation mechanisms cannot efficiently protect large-scale deployments.
Our latest work entitled "Big Data against Security Threats: The SPEAR Intrusion Detection System" presented the Intrusion Detection System that is being developed in the context of the SPEAR project. The work was presented at the 3rd World Symposium on Communication Engineering (WSCE 2020) and won the best presentation award.
SPEAR constitutes a complete security solution, tailored to the security requirements of the Smart Grid. The integrated Big Data analytics are capable of monitoring large-scale deployments of smart devices. Additionally, intuitive visualization techniques can provide real-time information about the smart grid status, as well as detailed alerts in cases of cyberattacks. From the market perspective, the SPEAR solution offers security automation, accelerates time-to-protection, and facilitates security operations.
