Safe distribution of electricity has been set as objective
Multifarious intentional and unintentional situations - ranging from short circuits and human errors to hackers and terrorists exploiting security vulnerabilities in control systems - can paralyse Large Critical Complex Infrastructures (LCCIs). VTT is playing a key role in an EU project aimed at protecting the critical infrastructure of European society. The project focuses on, e.g. preventing information security threats to the telecommunications systems of European electricity distribution networks. The project aims at improving the reliability, security and dependability of these systems.
The IRRIIS (Integrated Risk Reduction of Information-based Infrastructure Systems) project, part of the European Union Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), is aimed at deepening our understanding of information security threats to complex and critical infrastructures, particularly from the perspective of interdependencies. The recently launched project will run for three years and it has received seven million euros in funding from the EU. The project involves a consortium of fifteen corporate and research partners from different European countries and is co-ordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute from Germany.
