Statnett: Cyber exercise in the Nordic electricity sector
As framework provider of exercises to Statnett, the Norwegian state owned enterprise responsible for owning, operating and constructing the stem power grid in Norway, 4C Strategies supported the planning and delivery of Black Screen. Black Screen was a large-scale cyber exercise in the Nordic electricity sector. The exercise, including 84 representatives of 16 agencies from all five Nordic countries, took place in Oslo, Norway.
Over two days, a complex cyber-attack against SCADA systems in all five Nordic countries was played out, in a table top setting, mixed with live elements such as press conferences. This was an excellent opportunity for representatives of Transmission System Operators, regulating authorities and CERTs in all five Nordic countries to come together and develop their readiness toward major cyber-attacks.
