Q3/2018 - G7 Presidency, Canada
Energy Ministers’ Meeting, Halifax, 21 September 2018
Protecting power systems against cyber attacks was one of the agenda items at the G7 Energy Ministers’ Meeting on 21 September 2018 in Halifax. The digitalisation of the energy infrastructure had increased the vulnerability of the corresponding systems and they had become the target of cyber criminals and cyber terrorists.
