On-premise Data Security for Energy & Utilities

The energy sector is now more connected than ever. The digitalization of this industry, which includes the introduction of smart grid and smart metering solutions has enabled the energy sector to be more connected, efficient, and consequently sustainable.

The adoption of digital solutions, however, also generates a significant amount of sensitive and critical data that needs to be protected. Smart grid devices that collect, store, and use business data or consumer information are vulnerable to attacks, just like any other endpoint. This generated data plays an important role in the optimization of processes and data-driven innovations and is therefore extremely valuable to the organization in order to create a competitive edge toward future products and services. Additionally, GDPR compliant processes, storage, and protection must be used when handling customer information.

To ensure on-premises data security for the energy and utilities industry, it is essential to create a secure IT environment. Additionally, providers need to define ways to share and process the data while protecting it from external attacks. This is accomplished by protecting the data itself, for example via encryption or tokenization or by securing the communication channels.

Cyberattacks target the energy and utilities industry, particularly during times of crisis and geopolitical unrest.

Utimaco provides a range of on-premise data protection solutions that ensure the secure transmission, storage, and sharing of critical data in order to protect organizations and their customer’s data from potential attacks and data breaches.
