After the articles “IEC 61850 Standard, all for one and one for all” and “Multicast security in IEC 61850”, it is useful to add more information about the cybersecurity guidelines set out in the IEC 62351 standard with respect to the GOOSE protocol. An explanation will be made of the operation of the protocol, the weaknesses it presents and the appropriate security measures to protect it against possible attackers.

GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology is deeply integrated into society to meet geolocation and time measurement needs; it is considered one of the most reliable and it is a critical element for certain industrial sectors. However, due to the advancement of the technology and its widespread use, GNSS are being compromised by cybercriminals.
Anticipating is one of the four aims of cyberresilience. It consists of maintaining a state of informed readiness, in order to prevent essential services from being compromised in the event of a cyberattack. To measure the objectives of this aim, its three functional domains are analysed: cybersecurity policies, risk management and cybersecurity training.
Throughout the year 2019, we have worked on the detection, treatment and preparation of notices related to cybersecurity in industrial environments, classifying them based on the sector, manufacturer, criticality, etc. This article summarises this work and makes a brief prediction of the events that will take place in 2020.
Electric charging stations are increasingly used in urban furniture in cities. Electric cars and their need to be charged are a reality. Because of this, there is an increase in supply points that depend on specific protocols and communications for these stations.
Perhaps, given the many important cybersecurity leaks and intrusions in recent years involving everything from social media accounts to critical infrastructure and classified military secrets, the attention paid to the Aurora vulnerability has not been proportional to its seriousness and systems affected. This is because it affects almost every electrical system in the world, and potentially any rotating equipment, whether it generates energy or is essential for an industrial or commercial installation. If the threat is so widespread, why isn’t the industry more worried and actively looking for solutions? From this article various possible reasons for this are given.
Trips across the ocean have changed over the years with the arrival of the industrial revolution and information technology, among other things, making technology its best ally, both to automate their navigation and to control their location from land-based stations. However, this total dependence on technology brings with it important security issues that need to be addressed with the importance they deserve.
