Contextual Cybersecurity for EV Charging
and Distributed Energy Networks

The evolving energy market entails growing cybersecurity risks

As the world increasingly shifts towards green and sustainable energy, the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is accelerating worldwide. Consequently, EV Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) is continually augmented to support this energy evolution with its unique technology, architecture, assets, protocols, and cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Distributed Energy Resources Cyber Security
EV Charging Security

EV charging security exposure

Unique attack surface and vulnerabilities – EV charging sites, energy storage platforms, distributed energy resources (solar panels, wind turbines etc.) have inherent cyber vulnerabilities and risks that jeopardize EV charging availability, continuity, overall business, and the grid. These sites, platforms, and networks represent a highly impactful target for cyber attackers and malicious perpetrators of such activities.

EV charging and energy networks are not adequately cyber-secured

Direct internet connection, proprietary protocols (including OCPP, OCPI, IEEE 2030.5, DNP3, IEC 61850, OpenADR 2.0, etc.) lacking authentication and encryption, proper segmentation, and devices with known vulnerabilities are making these networks exposed and susceptive to cyber attacks.
