Helping prevent a cyber nightmare

With daily cyber attacks on the increase and reaching all areas, IEC work is essential to prevent or, fails this, mitigate their impact

Standardization work by the IEC technical committees (TCs) and subcommittees (SCs), and by the Joint Technical Committee (ISO/IEC JTC 1) set up by the IEC and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is meant to prevent and mitigate the catastrophic impact of cyber attacks on parts of the critical infrastructure everywhere. In addition, IECEE, the IEC System for Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components, is working on a generic conformity assessment (CA) model which can be applied to cyber security.

Looking to the future

New IEC White Papers highlight technology trends and industry needs

Two new IEC White Papers have recently been published, covering global energy interconnection and a smart and secure Internet of Things platform. In the IEC Market Strategy Board (MSB), CTOs of major global technology companies meet every year to identify and discuss important technology trends and industry needs for the coming 10 to 15 years. The IEC White Papers summarize the MSB recommendations regarding these technology trends to the IEC community and also to regulators, governments and academia. They are developed by the MSB together with renowned research organizations.
