|Abstract:||The European energy sector pays great attention to the protection of its large scale energy infrastructure and facilities. Therefore, the European Commission (EC) Directorate-General for Energy has established a dedicated office in order to support information sharing in the domain of incident and threats with particular focus on the cyber domain. The Incident and Threat Information Sharing - EU Centre (ITIS-EUC) aims to help in this direction by providing open source information on cyber vulnerabilities and incidents that take place at global level in order to support operators in the energy sector to obtain a high level of security. In the present report we aim to summarize the first half of 2016 in terms of ICS vulnerabilities and threats that may have an impact on the energy sector. We provide a critical view on these vulnerabilities in order to demonstrate their importance for the function of critical systems in the energy sector and the functioning of the critical energy infrastructure in general as well as the trends for the next year and protection measures that can be taken by the operators.|
