Skills to be acquired in this module

This module integrates current developments in cyber resilience and its application to energy systems.
Professional competences

The students

  • recognise the entailed problems and challenges of new digitalization trends such as billion devices on the internet connected to our power grid (televisions, baby monitors, alexa, etc.), smart services, cloud services, outsourcing, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data etc.
  • evaluate fraud/ intrusion detection methods
  • identify security flaws and vulnerabilities of the energy system

Methological competences
The students

  • examine tasks with technical and research literature, write an academic article and present their solutions academically
  • evaluate problems of cyber resilience in energy systems
  • schedule time processes and resources.

Social competences
The students

  • communicate with colleagues andexperts convincingly.

Self competences
The students

  • reflect the problems of cyber resilience of energy systems critically and pursue different possible solution strategies.
  • reflect self-developed hypotheses andtheories independently.
Module contents
  • Energy system as critical infrastructure (KRITIS)
  • Propagation of phenomena and their dynamics
  • Omnipresent conflicts of objectives
  • Susceptibility of the energy system to new effects, such as the occurrence of "classic" IT challenges (errors, update management, interactions, …) and to sophisticated cyber-attacks

Will be announced in the course
