Wurldtech Security Technologies and the European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS) have signed a partnership agreement to help improve collaboration and strengthen cybersecurity for critical infrastructure.

According to Wurldtech, the partnership commits the two organizations to share knowledge and expertise related to cybersecurity for industrial control systems and critical infrastructure in Europe to create new certification methodologies, develop testing capabilities for the smart grid, and collaborate in workshops and training.

"With fast developments in cyber incidents, it becomes increasingly important to test and certify equipment on cybersecurity before it enters the network," says Jouke Eikelboom, CEO of the ENCS. "Utilities ask us to provide practical approaches to assess their security level. The capabilities and knowledge of Wurldtech are an important contribution to respond to this need."
